Best Buy has updated its official Switch product page with a tool that will definitely come in hand for consumers. A “Check Stores” option is now present, allowing you to see if a unit is in stock nearby.

Simply enter a ZIP code or city / state. You’ll then be presented with nearby locations, if there are any. I happened to check and noticed that a few consoles are around my area, so it definitely does work.

Sonic Mania is currently suffering from a couple of technical hiccups on Switch. Multiple users have experienced issues with taking screenshots, accessing the Home Menu, and using the power button. The response times are either very slow, or completely nonexistent.

Kotaku says that the issues stem from playing in portable mode, but some players have reported encountering the same problems while the system is docked as well. The site adds that it isn’t happening for everyone, and can be intermittent.

We’re hoping it won’t be too long until an official fix is issued via an update. Thankfully, the issues don’t really affect gameplay.

Nintendo Life came across the bug roughly 10-15 minutes in. Following a QTE sequence of sorts in which the main character slides down a hill, players defeat an enemy and look for crafting items. However, when attempting to leap over a hill to progress to the next area, an endless loading screen appears.

Though Sonic Mania only just debuted today, some folks have already completed the game. If you’d like to see the final boss and ending, you can watch the video below.
