Nintendo Switch Midnight Release Event: GameStop To Have Limited Supply

Do you want to own a Nintendo Switch as early as possible, but didn’t manage to get a pre-order in time? You can try your luck at your local GameStop, because there will be a limited supply available right at midnight.

“Customers who were not able to pre-order the system are encouraged to attend GameStop’s midnight launch events,” the games retailer said in a news release. That being said, there will probably be only a handful of consoles coming to each store. If you want to try and get one, you’re probably going to have to be one of the first in line.

To find your local GameStop, use the store locator tool right here. Be sure to call ahead to make sure they are having a midnight release event in the first place.

If you want to try your luck online, GameStop will also be offering two Switch bundles on their site. While these don’t actually offer any savings, it’s another way to try and secure a console for yourself. The bundles aren’t available yet, but will be made available right around the Switch launch on March 3. The two bundles are as follows:

  • Bundle 1: Nintendo Switch, Switch Pro Controller, and a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - $429.99
  • Bundle 2: Bundle 1 and the Official Piggyback guide for Breath of the Wild - $454.99

So what do you think? Are you going to try and get a Switch at midnight? Do you already have one pre-ordered? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
