A note from the editor: Jelly Deals is a deals site launched by our parent company, Gamer Network, with a mission to find the best bargains out there. Look out for the Jelly Deals roundup of reduced-price games and kit every Saturday on Eurogamer.
Nintendo’s new, portable brainchild, the Switch, was unveiled at the tail-end of last year and went up for pre-order last month. In the days that followed, it quickly fell ‘out of stock’ at most retailers’ websites. Early impressions suggested that the Neon console sold out first, in case you were wondering. Retailers such as GAME kept pre-orders available but with the caveat that stock wasn’t guaranteed to arrive at launch.
All that has changed, though, since Nintendo UK has added a new batch of stock available to pre-order right now on its own website, as well as at a handful of selected retailers. This means that if you initially missed out on securing a pre-order for either version of the Nintendo Switch, you can head over to Nintendo’s UK site and put a pre-order down, which Nintendo assures us will be guaranteed for launch – at least until further notice.
