If you want to snag one, you should act now — the Nintendo Switch is likely to sell out fast. The system had become a rarity in the past few months due to increased demand, as many people sought out at-home entertainment options under coronavirus lockdowns. Subsequently, Nintendo reported a jaw-dropping 428 percent rise in profits for the last quarter, according to CNBC, with a 167 percent sale increase for the Nintendo Switch and Switch Lites. 

Sales for the Nintendo Switch have also skyrocketed as a result of the company’s latest hit game, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which has quickly become the fastest-selling Switch game of all time. Its overall numbers trail only behind Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and even celebrities such as Elijah Wood and Chrissy Teigen have become fans of the popular game, which has players building a life on a deserted island.
