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.

Walmart’s online listing for the Nintendo Switch now has a price point of $399 CAD, or $299 USD.
While we’re still a few short hours away from the Nintendo Switch presentation, it appears Walmart may have jumped the gun on releasing the pricing details for the Nintendo Switch. According to the Canadian Walmart website, the Nintendo Switch will cost $399 CAD. With current exchange rates, that will bring the price to around $299 USD.
We’ll hopefully know the final price point before today is over and won’t have to rely on retailer mishaps for much longer. You can view the web listing for yourself here.
