Why buy a regular Nintendo Switch when you can purchase one that's unique and not many people own? We're highlighting all of the different limited and special edition Nintendo Switch consoles you can buy today. Many limited-edition Switch consoles come with a digital or physical copy of the video games they're commemorating, as well as an extra goodie or two in some cases. At any rate, they'll be fun to play the best Nintendo Switch games on.

Please note: These consoles are sold in limited quantities and may not be available directly through any retailers. If you want to get your hands on something rare or previously sold out, you may have to purchase through a third party.
