When the systems go live, you'll be able to pick them up through this page. Only the Switch system with gray Joy-Cons appears on there right now, though that may still change.

Both the Switch and Classic Edition have been hot sellers since their respective launches in early March and last November. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime explained in January that the Classic Edition's issues were an instance of underestimating demand. Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima subsequently apologized for the supply issues. As for Switch, Nintendo expected to ship 2 million units worldwide by the end of March, and its production has reportedly been doubled for the year ahead.
