Alright Nintendo fanatics! If you weren’t able to grab yourself a Nintendo Switch last month when they were released, now may be your best bet.

Select retailers have announced that limited supply of the console is now available. Amazon (Prime only), Toys ‘R’ Us, Best Buy and GameStop all have a limited quantity of the Switch just in time for tomorrow’s release of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The game is set to hit the shelves for $60 (or a bit less for you, if you’re an Amazon Prime member).

The cost of the ultimate Nintendo experience is just under $400, considering that the console retails for $300 plus the $60 game. Lucky for you, GameStop is offering a $200 credit when you trade in a PS4, Xbox One,  3DS or Wii U and apply it to the Nintendo Switch. So instead of spending nearly $400, you only end up spending about half of that. The offer is only valid until this Sunday, April 30 or while supplies last.
