Walmart has been taking in-store pre-orders for Switch following the console’s unveiling last week, but that’s about to change. An internal notice from the retailer indicates that reservations will close on Monday.

Walmart was actually supposed to end pre-orders a bit earlier than Monday. However, “amazing sales” prompted them to remain open slightly longer.


Update 3 (1/21): Both games are now up for pre-order on GameStop.

Update 2: Bumped to the top. Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is showing in stock again.

Update: Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is currently “sold out”. We’ll let you know if that changes.

Original (1/18): Amazon is now taking pre-orders for two new Fire Emblem games. First, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia can be reserved here. Additionally, you can reserve Fire Emblem Warriors on New 3DS right here (the Switch version is here in case you missed it).

Update: Now out of stock. Lasted quite awhile!

Original: The Zelda: Breath of the Wild Special Edition is sold out at almost all retailers, but Walmart now has pre-orders open. You can nab a copy here. We don’t expect it to last terribly long, but we’ll update this post when it sells out.

Pre-orders for Switch opened in Japan today. The turnout was pretty decent, with long lines forming at various locations. Places such as Yodobashi Camera were packed with people waiting to pre-order Nintendo’s system.

Here’s a look at some of the lines:

Original: Over on the official Nintendo UK store, pre-orders are open for the new Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibo. The two Link versions, Zelda, Guardian, and Bokoblin are in stock. Find them all here.

Update: Best Buy’s page is currently having issues at the moment. Amazon’s 20% Prime discount also isn’t showing, but it should be applied on orders later. We’ll let you know when these issues are addressed.
