Switch placeholder listings pop up on Amazon UK from Nintendo and third-parties

A few days ago, a bunch of placeholder listings for Switch were spotted in GameStop’s internal database. The thought was that those were added to prepare for E3 and upcoming announcements as pre-orders will soon be opening. Now we’re seeing something similar from Amazon UK that are actually visible online.

Amazon UK now has about a dozen “dummy” placeholders from Nintendo. There’s even a 3DS listing oddly enough as well as one for a Switch console (which isn’t necessarily indicative of brand new hardware) and a couple of accessories. Ubisoft, Bandai Namco, and Warner Bros. Interactive have Switch placeholders as well.

You can view all of these listings on Amazon UK here. Just keep in mind there’s a chance they could be taken offline.
