Switch is up on Walmart

Posted on 3 weeks ago by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 0 comments | 0 Likes

Update: Well, that didn’t last very long at all! Already sold out it seems.

Original: Walmart currently has the Switch up on its website. Get the gray version here and neon version here. Walmart says this is a pre-order, but the units should be shipped out soon.

Walmart currently has the Zelda: Breath of the Wild Special Edition to pre-order. You can reserve the package here. This is mostly the same as the Master Edition, but is without the Master Sword statue.

Walmart has discounted the upcoming Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibo by 20%. All of the figures can be pre-ordered aside from Zelda. If you don’t have Amazon Prime or Best Buy GCU, the sale here could come in handy.

Walmart has been taking in-store pre-orders for Switch following the console’s unveiling last week, but that’s about to change. An internal notice from the retailer indicates that reservations will close on Monday.

Walmart was actually supposed to end pre-orders a bit earlier than Monday. However, “amazing sales” prompted them to remain open slightly longer.


Update: Now out of stock. Lasted quite awhile!

Original: The Zelda: Breath of the Wild Special Edition is sold out at almost all retailers, but Walmart now has pre-orders open. You can nab a copy here. We don’t expect it to last terribly long, but we’ll update this post when it sells out.

Walmart’s online listing for the Nintendo Switch now has a price point of $399 CAD, or $299 USD.

While we’re still a few short hours away from the Nintendo Switch presentation, it appears Walmart may have jumped the gun on releasing the pricing details for the Nintendo Switch. According to the Canadian Walmart website, the Nintendo Switch will cost $399 CAD. With current exchange rates, that will bring the price to around $299 USD.

We’ll hopefully know the final price point before today is over and won’t have to rely on retailer mishaps for much longer. You can view the web listing for yourself here.


Switch ads popping up at Walmart

Posted on 2 months ago by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 19 Comments | 0 Likes

Switch ads have already been appearing at retailers like GameStop and Target. Along with these two, Walmart is beginning to show some promotional material for the new console as well. We’ll likely see additional ads at retailers soon following this week’s presentation with more up-to-date information – like a final release date.


A pair of Wii U games are on sale over at Walmart. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD and Splatoon are currently $35 each. These deals seem to come from a “Green Monday” sale, so they may only last through today.

Update 5: Kirby: Planet Robobot is $25 on Amazon.

Update 4: Nintendo Selects: Super Mario All-Stars is now $15 on Amazon. The Animal Crossing amiibo 3-pack is $10 at Walmart.

Update 3 (11/25): Nintendo Selects: Pikmin 3 is now $15 on Amazon. Cartoon Network: Battle Crashers is also already half off and the same price on Amazon.

Update 2: LEGO Dimensions packs have received notable discounts on Amazon, including the new Sonic pack.

Update: Bumped to the top. A few more deals:

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens for $20 – Amazon
Nintendo Selects: Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon for $15 – Amazon
Nintendo Selects: Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D – Amazon
Nintendo Selects: Tomodachi Life – Amazon

A number of notable Nintendo-related deals are now live at various retailers. Highlights include Pokken Tournament for $35, Kirby: Planet Robobot for $25, and 15% off eShop cards.

Here’s what we’ve come across thus far:

Pokken Tournament for $35 – Target, Amazon
Splatoon for $35 – Amazon, Target, Amazon
Super Mario Maker for $35 – Target
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U – Amazon
Bravely Second for $20 – Best Buy, Amazon
Pokemon Omega Ruby for $25 – Walmart, Amazon
Pokemon Alpha Sapphire for $25 – Walmart, Amazon
Minecraft: Wii U Edition for $20 – Amazon
Pokemon X for $20 – Best Buy, Amazon
Pokemon Y for $20 – Best Buy, Amazon
Kirby: Planet Robobot for $25 – Target
Fire Emblem Fates for $25 – Best Buy, Amazon (Birthright only currently on Amazon)
15% off eShop cards – Best Buy

A couple of other things worth noting: you can use the code HOLIDAYBOOK on Amazon to take $10 off a book purchase over $25 (works on all books, but you can get started with gaming ones here.) You can also keep track of Amazon’s Black Friday lightning deals here.

Update 2: Walmart is currently out of white. However, the black and white versions are both now live on Best Buy.

Update: The black version is now up on GameStop. White version here.

Original: Walmart is now accepting orders for the Super Mario Black/White Edition New 3DS systems. Get the black version here and white version here. Judging by how things went on Amazon, don’t expect them to stay in stock very long.
