Heads up everyone, Nintendo Switch deals are back in stock - for the handheld-only Switch Lite, anyway. That's something to celebrate, as the console has been hard to get hold of until now thanks to the current crisis.

To begin with, Online retailer Very is offering a Lite console (in Yellow or Grey) with Animal Crossing: New Horizons for £239. It's rare to get that game bundled with a console, particularly at that price, so we'd recommend picking it up sharpish if you're interested.

Similarly, bundles at Currys are cheaper than a lot of the competition. For example, you can get a Grey Nintendo Switch Lite with The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening and six months of Spotify Premium for just £229. That's a pleasant change. More opportunistic sellers have hiked up prices way beyond the RRP because of the console's scarcity.

Elsewhere, the Nintendo Switch Lite has made a surprise return for £199 on Amazon (but only in grey, turquoise and yellow). That's a quid cheaper than normal. It's available in solo or bundle-form at Game too, so be sure to take a look there if you're on the hunt for a bargain. Oh, and if you're also in the market for a new phone? This mobile phone deal comes with a free Nintendo Switch console. Yes, really. 

However, just be aware that it's not a situation likely to last. Stock levels are fluctuating wildly as it is, so we'd recommend seizing any tempting offer before it vanishes. More than a few sales have disappeared already, for instance; just last week you could pick up a Lite console and the latest Animal Crossing for £229 from Currys, but it's nowhere to be seen now.

Regardless of what you choose, it's good timing. Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a massive hit right now, so still being able to grab the console is a very welcome surprise.

Nintendo Switch Lite back in stock here

Nintendo Switch Lite (Yellow) + Animal Crossing: New Horizons | £239.99 at Very
This is a fair offer on the brand new Animal Crossing: New Horizons and a console; it saves you around £5. Because the new Animal Crossing is one of the year's biggest releases, that's not to be sniffed at. Bundle also available in Grey.View Deal

Nintendo Switch Lite (Coral) | £199.99 at Very
Well hello there, Switch Lite Coral... This new colour has only just come out and is unavailable pretty much everywhere else, so Very's offer is a big deal. Sure, it doesn't technically save you anything. But being able to get the system in Coral at all is a win. Grab it while you can!View Deal

Nintendo Switch Lite (Grey) + Super Smash Bros. Ultimate + 6-month Spotify Premium | £239 at Currys
If you want a tried-and-true Switch bundle that's sure to please, this Super Smash Bros. Ultimate offer is a good start. It gets you the popular game's latest iteration with the handheld console for almost £8 less. Bundle also available in Yellow.View Deal

Nintendo Switch Lite (Grey) + Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening + 6 months of Spotify Premium | £229 at Currys
Currys has a variety of offers on right now, but the best one would have to be this bundle that gets you Link's Awakening thrown in. That's a relatively new release, so getting it for less with the console is great. Oh, and receiving 6 months of Spotify Premium helps! Also available in Yellow.View Deal

Nintendo Switch Lite (Grey) + The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt + 6-month Spotify Premium | £229 at Currys
Besides saving almost £15, you're getting one of the best RPGs to go with your shiny new Switch Lite. An essential purchase for those who enjoyed the Netflix series or the original books that inspired it. Don't forget about that bonus six months of Spotify Premium, either!View Deal

Nintendo Switch Lite (Grey) + Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild | £244 at Game
One of Game's most tempting offers would be the console with Breath of the Wild. It's comfortably one of the console's very best games, and it stubbornly holds its price as well - getting it for less than £45-50 is good going. As such, this offer with a console is worth considering. Also available in Yellow and Turquoise.View Deal

Nintendo Switch Lite | £199 at Amazon
At the time of writing, you could still pick up a Switch Lite from Amazon - including the Coral version. This might be your last chance for a few weeks to get one at the regular asking price, though. Stock for the normal Nintendo Switch has long gone nationwide, so the Lite may follow before long.View Deal

Nintendo Switch Lite | Bundles and consoles available at Game
There's a broad range of solo consoles and bundles on offer at Game, and most of them are great value for money. You can pick up everything from Breath of the Wild with a console to Witcher 3 and a Switch Lite.View Deal

Curious about the difference between the Nintendo Switch Lite and the standard Switch console? It boils down to cost and portability. To start with, the Lite can only be played in handheld mode - in other words, it can't be connected to the TV. However, it is a lot cheaper as a result. That makes it perfect for the couch, while in the garden, or on the go.
