The elusive Switch OLED will be in stock for in-store purchases on launch day at GameStop stores all across the US!
Nintendo’s new Switch OLED was announced all the way back in July, so it has been a long wait for many gamers to get their hands on one.
However, the Switch OLED pre-orders sold out almost immediately. This left many diehard Nintendo fans disappointed that they couldn’t get the new console on launch day.
Luckily, GameStop could be coming to the rescue for those who weren’t able to pre-order a Switch OLED.
Even pre-ordering a Switch doesn’t guarantee you getting it on launch day though. Some retailers are delaying Switch OLED delivery by up to a week!
Switch OLED Launch Day
We previously reported that the Nintendo Switch OLED will be available in-store on launch day. However, now we know have more information about one of the retailers that will be stocking the console.
Sources close to Gaming Intel can confirm some GameStop stores will have limited stock of Nintendo Switch OLED consoles on launch day.
This backs up claims from multiple GameStop employees on Twitter, saying that the Switch OLED will be on sale in their store on Friday, October 8 – when it releases.
