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 are looking to get your hands on something rare or previously sold out, you may have to purchase through a third party.

Tropical paradise: Animal Crossing: New Horizons SwitchStaff pick
By far, this is the most bright-colored Switch setup we've seen Nintendo release so far (not counting the Switch Lite designs). You get two pastel-colored Joy-Cons and a bright dock featuring Tom, Timmy, and Tommy Nook.
Hunting time: Monster Hunter Rise Edition
Monster Hunter fans in Europe rejoice! A sweet new Switch bundle can be yours. It includes the Monster Hunter Rise game as well as a super awesome-looking Switch with unique designs on the front and back. Unfortunately, we don't know if or when it will be made available in North America.
A signature look: Mario Red + Blue Edition Nintendo Switch
This special Nintendo Switch was revealed alongside Bowser's Fury, the brand-new add-on included with Super Mario 3D World on the Switch. The red and blue colors on this console match Mario's signature outfit, while the included carrying case features Mario's iconic gear: his gloves, hat, overalls, and of course, his mustache.
Mario's back: Super Mario Odyssey Nintendo Switch
Super Mario's inaugural title on the Nintendo Switch is unique, fun, and good in all the ways only Mario can be. This special Switch console comes with two red Joy-Cons and a bright red carrying case. It's tough to find, so you'll likely need to buy it used.
Catch 'em all: Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu / Let's Go Eevee Nintendo Switch
Pokémon fans will get a kick out of the Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee bundle. The Switch dock comes with pictures of Eevee and Pikachu, the Joy-Cons are stylized after them, and the rear of the Switch console has stencils of all your favorite Pokémon. You'll also get your game of choice (which may change the price) and a Poke Ball Plus!
Fighting glory: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Nintendo Switch
The biggest Super Smash Bros. game ever is on the Switch, and Nintendo has an awesome console to commemorate the launch. You'll get a gray Switch console complete with specially designed Joy-Cons and a docking station with several iconic Nintendo characters.
Destroy evil: Diablo 3 Eternal Collection Nintendo Switch
For the first time, you can play Diablo 3 on a handheld. This Nintendo Switch bundle features a specially marked Switch console and dock, as well as a carrying case to match. This console version is tough to find. You're best bet is to buy it used.
Become a dragon: Dragon Quest XI Nintendo Switch
Available exclusively in Japan, this bundle is one of the rare Switch systems that comes with two blue Joy-Cons. It also features a sword and shield on the Nintendo Switch dock as well as various Dragon Quest stencils on both the console and Joy-Cons. Hunt for it on eBay.
Get messy: Splatoon 2 Nintendo Switch
Like the Super Mario Odyssey bundle, Splatoon 2's unique Switch console doesn't have any special markings on it, but the Joy-Cons come in special colors — Neon Pink and Neon Green — and a carrying case, too. While this may be on Amazon from time to time, you'll likely have to buy used on eBay to get this one.
Mickey and friends: Disney Tsum Tsum Festival Bundle
The adorable Disney emojis look absolutely perfect on this vibrant Switch. Stitch, Mickey Minnie, and Winnie the Pooh are featured on the dock, while the iconic Mickey ears are on the right Joy-Con's Home button. It's one of the harder ones to find, so you'll need to pay a pretty penny to get it.
JRPG lovers: Jack Jeanne Switch Lite
This is the rarest Switch edition to have come out so far. It's estimated that there are only 50 to 100 of these made, so it can be really hard to find one for sale. It depicts a character from the Jack Jeanne JRPG as illustrated by Toyko Ghoul artist Sui Ishida.
Become legendary: Zacian and Zamazenta Nintendo Switch Lite
From Pokémon Sword & Shield comes the legendary pairing which adorns the back of this Switch Lite console. With opposing colors on either side, this Switch Lite is guaranteed to stand out from the crowd.
Battle Royale: Fortnite Special Edition Switch
Released in Europe on Oct. 30 and New Zealand and Australia on Nov. 6, the newest limited-edition console features bright yellow and blue Joy-Cons and a custom dock. It also comes with the free battle royale game pre-installed and a download code for special outfits and in-game currency. There's no word on when it might come to the U.S., so your best bet is to buy one from a third-party seller shipping internationally.
On the Hunt: Monster Hunter XX Special Edition Nintendo Switch Bundle
Another Japan-exclusive, this special console launched alongside the action RPG in 2017. It includes a physical copy of the game, which was also only released in Japan, gray Joy-Con controllers, and a dock decorated with themed runes.
Stand out from the crowd with a limited edition Switch console
While all Nintendo Switch consoles do the same thing, these special edition consoles have unique appearances. You can be sure yours will turn heads when you enter a room, especially if you have the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Switch or the fantastic with its blue Joy-cons.
If you're after a Nintendo Switch Lite, we recommend the Zacian and Zamazenta edition inspired by Pokémon Sword and Shield. Be sure to snag one the moment you've decided which one you want because there's no telling how long they'll last!
