The Nintendo Switch dock has apparently been out of stock for quite a while now in the United Kingdom and today a Reddit user reached out to the company to find out when it will be available again. The user received a response from the Nintendo Official UK Store who told him that the Nintendo Switch dock has now been discontinued. This is clearly a strange decision by Nintendo, but it could further hint to the rumour that the company is planning an updated Switch for early 2021. This remains a rumour at present.
Thank you for contacting us and placing an enquiry.
A member of our Nintendo Customer Support Team has looked into your enquiry and added a response.
For your records, your original query was:
When will the Switch dock set be available for purchase again? The product has been out of stock for some time in the UK whereas the US, Japan and Europe has been available since the product’s release. Can the dock be available once again, it’s important for us as users to want to be able to have a Switch dock in every room that has a TV. a dock for traveling or just as a backup.
After further investigation, we can confirm the following:
Thanks for getting in contact with Nintendo.
I am really sorry but we have discontinued the Nintendo Switch Dock Set in the UK, therefore our UK Store will no longer stock this on our site.
I apologise for the inconvenience this may have caused.
