Nintendo Switch Will Be In Stock At Toys R Us Soon
Set your alarm for this Friday, May 19.
Your next best chance to pick up a Nintendo Switch may be at Toys R Us later this week.
The retailer will have the system in stock throughout the United States on Friday, May 19, it tells GameSpot. As is always the case, it will be available in limited quantities, so you'll likely have to act fast if you're hoping to pick one up. Toys R Us suggests getting to your local store before it opens on Friday, though that's no guarantee that you'll get one.
Switch has been sold out since its release in early March, though it has been restocked a number of times. Nintendo actually shipped far more units worldwide in March--2.74 million-- than it originally suggested it would, but it still hasn't been able to meet demand. At one point March, it took the unusual (and costly) measure of shipping some consoles by air.
There's no telling when demand will be satisfied. During a conference call with investors earlier this year, GameStop suggested the supply issues could last for the entire year.
