Late Thursday night, Nintendo unveiled a ton of important details about its upcoming game console, the Switch. Thanks to that event, we now know the Switch’s price ($299 to start), release date (March 3), and list of games on the horizon.
But right now, you’re probably just wondering how you can actually buy this machine. Thankfully, Nintendo is working with several big-box retailers so you can pre-order and pick up your Nintendo Switch at midnight on launch day, Friday, March 3.
Here’s where you can pre-order the new Nintendo Switch:
– Amazon (currently sold out)
– Best Buy (still available for pre-order, but only for in-store pickup)
– Walmart (currently out of stock)
– Target (currently in stock)
– Gamestop (currently in stock)
We’ll continually update this list as we learn about more places you can pre-order, and as stock of the Nintendo Switch fluctuates. But you are if you’re interested in buying/pre-ordering the console, don’t get discouraged by seeing the “out of stock” messages; keep all of these links handy. All of these retailers continually refill their available stock, as has happened within the first 8 hours of availability, so keep your eyes peeled and you just might be able to snag a new Switch.
If you want to get a new game for your new console, we also highly recommend pre-ordering the new “Legend of Zelda” game, one of the most anticipated games of 2017, which thankfully launches the same day as the Switch, on March 3. Amazon is currently sold out of pre-orders for “Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” (you can get notified when more are in stock), but Prime members will be able to get the game for 20% off using pre-orders and within the first two weeks of availability. GameStop currently has the game in stock.
