Best Buy

Earlier in the week, we found out that Pokemon Snap is returning with a brand new game – aptly named New Pokemon Snap. Pre-orders have now started to open.

Best Buy is taking reservations here while GameStop’s page is here. There’s nothing from Amazon currently, though we’ll keep an eye on things.

A release window for New Pokemon Snap hasn’t been announced, but fans hope we’ll be seeing it before 2020 is over.

Best Buy has revealed a pre-order bonus for LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. By reserving the game, you’ll receive a special steelbook. We have a look at the design above.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga launches on Switch later in 2020. Though not official announced, it could be arriving on October 20.

Super Mario 3D World for Switch has a listing on Best Buy – well, sort of. It’s not truly live on the website, as it’s inactive and the URL essentially leads nowhere at the moment. Still, its existence alone is generating some excitement. The question is, does the listing actually have any meaning?

Here’s a look at what’s been making the rounds:

Best Buy currently has some Switch Lite systems in stock. Along with the yellow design, the turquoise one is available now as well.

If interested, you can place an order here. It’s unclear how long Best Buy will be carrying stock for.
