Hybrid hot cakes.
Retailer GameStop has announced today that it has sold out all of its allotted Nintendo Switch pre-orders. After opening up pre-orders on Friday (Jan. 13) just after Nintendo’s big presentation, the first available batch of systems has completely sold.
GameStop Merchandising Vice President Bob Puzon said in a statement: “The fact that this initial allotment has been completely reserved in a matter of a few days demonstrates gamers’ desire for this fun and revolutionary gaming system.”
Puzon then went on to say that GameStop was working closely with Nintendo to secure further units: “We’re working closely with Nintendo to get additional Nintendo Switch units, and will let our customers know when they become available.”
The statement then highlighted the 16 games that are currently available to pre-order for the new console from the GameStop website. These include initial launch titles like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and 1-2-Switch, through to games on the horizon like Super Mario Odyssey and ARMS.
The console launches on March 3 and costs $300.
