Nintendo Switch is currently not available to pre-order in the US

Last year, Nintendo made waves by announcing its new gaming console called the Nintendo Switch, the company’s seventh major home console with release date scheduled on March 3 2016. The new game console quickly went on pre-order last week in the US in very limited quantities. However, it appears that the console has gone out of stock, as most of major US retailers currently list the console as “Coming Soon.” Or “Not Available”, while customers cannot access the listing on Walmart’s website.


According to sources, the Nintendo Switch gaming console will be restocked in the future, but chances that users will wait a little bit longer to get their hands on one of the most anticipated gaming consoles this year. For those unfamiliar, the Nintendo Switch is a hybrid console, as it offers different play modes. The game console includes two detachable controllers that can be either attached to the grip to provide gamepad or two sides for handheld play mode.

The Nintendo Switch features a 6.2” screen and a six-hour battery. According to Nintendo, users will be able to play the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for up to three hours on a single charge and you can charge your gaming console through the USB-C connector. Nintendo is expecting to ship around two million Nintendo Switch units during its first month of availability and the company ensures a stable supply to meet the huge demand.

One of the most interesting things about the Nintendo Switch is that it includes Joy-Con controllers which support multiplayer gaming. The gaming console will be officially available on March 3 in 31 European countries including UK, France, Germany, Denmark, Portugal and Russia, while US and South Africa will get the device on the same day. Nintendo Switch will be priced at $300 in the US and 280 GBP in the UK.
