If you haven’t found a Nintendo Switch, it may be heard to find one for a little bit. GameStop has gone on record stating that they expect the popular system to be sold out for quite sometime and it could take all year long. Here is what GameStop chief operating officer Tony Bartel had to say:
“The demand is incredibly strong for this. As soon as we get any in our stores, it’s out within hours. We anticipate we’re going to be chasing supply this entire year”.
Nintendo has to be pleased with news like this and it will only getting better. With games like Splatoon 2, Super Mario Odyssey and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on the way, it looks like the Switch is going to enjoy a healthy year sales wise. Let us know if you have gotten your hands on one.
Major retailer Gamestop has gone on record praising the recent success of the Nintendo Switch. The company has stated that sales for the system have been phenomenal and that they will continue to push stock of the hot console. Here is what they had to say about the system:
“The Nintendo Switch is off to a start right now that it could possibly eclipse the Wii. Initial sales on this have been phenomenal. I can’t give straight numbers, but I can say we’re seeing one of the highest attach rates of software and accessories to a device that we’ve seen in a long time.”
“We’re seeing tremendous success with the power chargers for the Nintendo Switch, as well as people coming in and picking up extra Joy-Con so people can turn it into a four-player device. We will soon be going online with all-new bundles. Because of the popularity of Zelda, which is one of my top picks, we’re putting together a Zelda bundle of hardware and accessories for customers to pick up online.”
I am absolutely LOVING the new Zelda and have been taking my sweet time with the game. I am hoping to have a review on the website soon.

In case you missed my latest upload featuring the Nintendo Switch, be sure to check out the video above! My YouTube channel has been filling up with all things Nintendo Switch, so be sure to head over there and subscribe to the channel. In this video, I discuss how the system can be an advertising DREAM for Nintendo and I would LOVE to hear what you guys have to say. I break down how many Switch systems will be “out in the wild” (I have already seen 4 people playing their systems in public) and how that can, in turn, be a HUGE marketing/advertising tool for the big N.
Check it out everyone and let me know what you think. Enjoy.
Hardware sales from Japan are in and (as expected), the Nintendo Switch sits on top of the sales chart. The newly released system shifted nearly 62K units and enjoyed great sales around the globe. The PS4 moved 35K and the 3DS rounded out the top 3.
Don’t look now but a listing on Amazon has the upcoming Nintendo Switch game, ARMS, as releasing on May 2nd. While it may be a placeholder release date, it certainly would be a pretty nice surprise. The game was first shown earlier this year and has piqued my interest immensely. I think it’s going to be so much fun watching my kiddos duke it out in the game. Keep in mind nothing is confirmed as of this writing for the release date for ARMS, but we hope to hear something soon from Nintendo.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in April, ARMS in (possibly) May and Splatoon 2 around the corner? Yes please!
In case you missed my latest YouTube upload, I unboxed the Nintendo Switch console! If you want to check out my official unboxing, check out the video above and give it a watch. Check out what I walked away with and be sure to let me know what you guys picked up. If you’re feeling awesome, be sure to subscribe to the channel.
Enjoy my unboxing for the Nintendo Switch everyone.
Nintendo has uploaded an all new overview trailer for the upcoming Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the Nintendo Switch. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is set to launch late next month and will be a strong title for Nintendo’s latest console. Even though we have the game for Wii U, I plan on picking this one up for the Switch due to the added content. Plus a full blown, console Mario Kart on the go just sounds too good to pass up.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has already managed to break several records despite being released a week ago. The title has been gaining a ton of perfect scores from a number of different publications and 40 different sites submitted their review to metacritic praising the game. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild launched worldwide on March 3 and is available for Nintendo Switch and Wii U. The game has already become Nintendo’s most popular release and will no doubt become one of the best titles to ever grace any console.
I am thoroughly enjoying my time with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, so be sure to stop back for my official review.
Stay tuned as we pump out more Nintendo news. Game on.
Gamestop has gone on record stating that the Nintendo Switch was a massive success as a new console launch. GameStop Senior Director of Merchandising, Eric Bright, has given his views on how the launch went up and down GameStop’s throughout North America. Here is what he had to say regarding the systems launch:
“Stores across the country last night were packed with customers who couldn’t wait to get their hands on the brand new Nintendo Switch. We even had customers lining up as early as yesterday morning so that they could be one of the lucky ones to score one of the additional units for our walk-in customers. This is one of the strongest and most successful gaming console launches for GameStop in the last several years. For those fans who are still looking for the Nintendo Switch, don’t worry–we’re getting more. And, we’re pretty sure that there are a lot of gaming fans who pulled all-nighters last night playing their new Switch, and who also called in sick to work today with ‘game-fluenza’ just to stay home and play even more.”
