The cute and adorable special edition Switch that Nintendo released prior to Animal Crossing: New Horizons is now even harder to find. While some stores received a second batch that quickly sold out, or perhaps saving them for the game’s release, the Big N has made the unit vanish from the Nintendo site

Spotted on r/NintendoSwitch, Nintendo’s photos, information, and retailer search for the island getaway blue and green beauty are no more. Now if you want to try and find a unit, you’ll have to use stock checking websites. On top of that, you’re now limited to a handful of retailers. Target delisted the unit from their site, and other retailers list it as sold out. The third-party/scalper market though is booming, with inflated prices. 

If you were hoping to secure this special Switch edition in time for New Horizons’ release date, your chances are slim, sadly.
