Daily Deals: The Last of Us Part 2 Ellie Edition in Stock, $10 Off Animal Crossing, FFVII, Persona, Resident Evil 3, Doom EternalMarch 14, 2020
Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing Edition Preorders Now Up on Amazon
This is, in my opinion, the best looking Switch out there. Every part of the Switch has been themed. The Joy-Con controllers are a pastel blue and green, the back of the Switch is embossed with an Animal Crossing design, and even the dock has a full color Animal Theme decal. I already own a Switch and for the first time I’m jealous of anyone who gets a hold of this one. RIght now, it’s only available at select vendors.
