Switch

Stores are slowly but surely adding more Switch stock. This week for example, GameStop locations across the United States had a few more units to sell.

At Toys “R” Us, Switch will be available this weekend. The retailer has confirmed than consoles will be sold again on Saturday. Due to the high demand and low stock available, customers are advised to arrive before the doors open at 9 AM.

Toys “R” Us hasn’t indicated how many units each store will receive. If possible, you may want to try calling ahead to verify with your local store that a restock is planned.

The team behind Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has made it official: the game is heading to Switch. Additionally, plans for the Wii U version have been cancelled. News about a Switch version of Bloodstained first emerged earlier this month.

In a Kickstarter update, it’s noted that “the situation has drastically changed after the release of Nintendo Switch.” It made sense to include Wii U during the campaign as Switch wasn’t in the picture at all, but that’s no longer so. “This change made it difficult to receive the necessary support from the hardware maker, which has led us to drop the Wii U development and shift the development to Nintendo Switch,” the Kickstarter update reads.

Those who supported Bloodstained on Kickstarter can change their backer survey platform from Wii U to Switch or any other version. A refund should also be possible under most circumstances.
