Why buy a regular Nintendo Switch when you can purchase one that not many people in the world own? We're highlighting all of the different limited and special edition Nintendo Switch consoles you can buy today. All of these 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.
Please note: These consoles are sold in limited quantities and may not be available through any retailers directly. If you are looking to get your hands on something rare or previously sold out, you may have to purchase through a third party.

This is by far 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.
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 really hard to find, so you'll likely need to buy it used.
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 itself 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!
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.
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 really hard to find. You're best bet is to buy it used.
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. Your best bet is to buy it off of eBay.
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.
Stand out from the crowd
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 Dragon Quest XI Bundle with its blue Joy-cons.
If you are after a Nintendo Switch Lite, then the only choice right now is the sublime Zacian and Zamazenta Nintendo Switch Lite. Be sure to snag one the moment you've decided which one you want because there's no telling how long they'll last!
