If you've tried unsuccessfully to get a Switch or Switch Lite for months, there may be hope on the horizon. Our friends at GameSpot have reported that Nintendo has resolved virtually all of the supply chain problems caused by the Corona virusand expects production to return to normal for the switch. The Switch Lite was not explicitly mentioned, but we noticed that some retailers have started to keep the junior console back in stock in the past few days. It therefore seems reasonable that this applies to both production lines.

The inventory could not return at a better time. There was a clear upswing Popularity of video games With millions remaining at home and the Nintendo Switch scarcely to be found since March at least, the pandemic has disrupted the global electronics supply chain and dingy resellers have used bots to track down the low inventory. Oh, and that Animal Crossing: New Horizons popularity didn't help either.

Now that the Nintendo Switch Lite is available again from retailers like Amazon, GameStop, Best Buy and Target, we're putting together available inventory here for a MSRP of $ 200. However, keep in mind that prices and availability change frequently. Please check this before completing a purchase.

And of course, it should be noted that you cannot connect this version of the switch to your TV – this is only the more expensive one $ 300 counter. If you need more encouragement to take the plunge into the Lite model, you can read CNET's review of the Switch Lite. And we'll also let you know when the switch returns to inventory.
