GameStop Will Have “Limited Supply” Of Nintendo Switch Units On Launch Day

GameStop has announced that it will have a “limited supply” of Nintendo Switch consoles available for walk-in customers on the system’s March 3 launch day.

In a statement, GameStop’s senior vice president of merchandising Bob Puzon suggested that potential customers act quickly if they couldn’t secure a pre-order. “I would strongly suggest customers plan on attending one of our midnight launch events for a shot at securing one of these extra units. They will go fast,” said Puzon in the statement. With pre-orders selling out almost immediately after they went live this may be the only chance for people who didn’t pre-order to get the console at launch.



GameStop also said it will offer two Nintendo Switch bundles online in limited supplies as well. The first bundle, containing the console, a Pro Controller and a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sells for $430. The second bundle includes everything listed plus a copy of the Breath of the Wild strategy guide for $455.

The Switch is Nintendo’s next game console and the successor to the struggling Wii U. A hybrid home/portable system, the Switch can be played on the go or connected to a TV. The base unit, which doesn’t include a game, is priced at $300. In addition to The Legend of Zelda at launch, Nintendo has also confirmed new entries in the Splatoon and Super Mario franchises will be released before the end of the year.

Our very own Rochellie Fagan and O’Dell Harmon Jr. checked out the Switch and its games before launch. You can check out their opinions to see if they think it’s worth a day one purchase. Additionally, The Game Fanatics editor Ben Runnings also went over his best and worst case predictions for the console.
