With only two million units available for its launch month, Nintendo’s brand new Switch console is already shaping up to be hard to get. Come March 2017, we’re guessing people will be struggling to get their hands on one.

The new console, which will retail for $299, is open for pre-order as of today. You can reserve yours through Gamestop, Target, and Best Buy. Amazon and Walmart‘s pre-orders are sold out already, but you can sign up to be notified when the retailers get new stock.


There will surely be bundles on the horizon too, so keep an eye out for that. And don’t forget to check out The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which is literally the perfect launch title for a new Nintendo console. We can’t wait!
