Best Buy

Best Buy has opened pre-orders for the Splatoon 2 Edition Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. You can reserve it here. Also, we seem to have confirmation that the controller will indeed cost $75.

Switch has managed to boost Best Buy’s sales. According to a Bloomberg report, demand for the console “helped the retailer post a surprise sales gain” in Q1.

Best Buy isn’t the only retailer benefiting from the launch of Switch. Target said last week that its electronics sales “leapt forward” thanks to the console.


Best Buy is taking pre-orders once again for two upcoming amiibo. The Link Majora’s Mask figure is here, and Bayonetta (Player 2) is here. Both are Best Buy exclusives.

Toys “R” Us restocked Switch at its stores across the United States yesterday. Over at Best Buy, the retailer will have units as well. Gray and neon units will apparently be on hand.

Best Buy’s Twitter page told one consumer the following:

If you’re planning on going to Best Buy tomorrow, you may want to show up before the store opens. You may also want to call ahead of time to confirm the restock.

Best Buy will be restocking two popular items next week. First up is the NES Classic Edition, which will be sold on Monday. Switch follows on Friday – just in time for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The restocks should be in stores at the very least, but perhaps online as well.

This might be one of your last chances to purchase your own NES Classic Edition. Nintendo is discontinuing the hardware, and final shipments are being sent out this month.
