But some good news if you're hoping to get your hands on the new console when it launches next week: There will be some more available for people who didn't preorder.
Best Buy told GoMN Friday there will be "limited quantities" of the Nintendo Switch console in stores on March 3. If it's one of the 600-plus Best Buys doing a midnight launch (17 of them are in Minnesota), they'll be available then. And a spokesperson said, considering the buzz around Switch, people wanting to get their hands on one at midnight should plan to head there early.
The retailer is also giving away a free Zelda poster that night while supplies last.
Otherwise, Best Buy stores will be open at normal hours Friday to sell it.
Target meanwhile told GoMN it went through preorder quantities last month, but will get another wave of Switch consoles in stores and online starting March 3 for purchase. The consoles will be set and ready to go when doors open – and don't be surprised if there's a line, based on how much excitement the retailer has seen for the Switch, the spokesperson said.
The Switch is $299.99 for the base console, which comes with the handheld screen, two detachable Joy-Cons, the dock and cords to connect it to the TV, and a Joy-Con grip that can hold the two mini controllers together without the use of the screen.
Where else can I get it?
Best Buy and Target are the locally owned retailers of course. But they're not the only places that will get more Switch consoles in.
GameStop said this week stores will have a "limited supply" of Switch consoles available for walk-in customers on launch day. They're doing pretty much all midnight launch events, and that's probably your best bet to get one if you haven't preordered.
Polygon says Walmart will probably get some in for March 3, but it isn't known for sure. And Amazon hasn't revealed when it will have more in for purchase online (though it's probably worth checking on launch day).
Any early reviews?
Publications have just recently started posting pre-launch impressions of the console, which is Nintendo's first in four years.
