You’ll have three different ways of purchasing a Switch unit in the United States this week. Along with GameStop and Best Buy, Target should be restocking the console. That’s based on the store’s new ad put out yesterday.

Target indicates that Switch will be in stock on Friday. Note that quantities will be limited, and colors will vary by store.

The Savage Lynel Sword in the player’s inventory carries damage of 6,559 with an “Attack Up” stat of 65,535. 65,535 is the maximum value for a 16bit unsigned integer in the world of programming, in case you’re interested.

You can see Eastonator12 taking down the final boss in Breath of the Wild with just one hit of the sword with the video below.

A new series hit the Play Nintendo YouTube channel today. Chiko from Nintendo Treehouse try out the game in three different videos, all of which are attached below.

The full results from Gfk are as follows:

GameStop hasn’t said how much stock it received from Nintendo. It’s best to call your local store to see what the situation is like.

GameStop will also be selling a few Switch bundles online. Those options are as follows:
