If you didn’t score a Nintendo Switch the day it premiered, you may be kicking yourself now as the console is sold out just about everywhere. Stores are hustling to get it back in stock to keep customers happy, and GameStop looks like it could have the edge on that.

The video game retailer will ship a Switch to your home on April 17 if you buy a bundle that includes the grey system, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and its expansion pass and guide, Snipperclips, and Just Dance 2017. It also comes with a charging dock for the Joycons, a 64 GB microSD card and a Powerkit AC adapter.

The bundle retails for $599.99, more than the average buyer may want to spend. However, people who buy this much get the advantage of getting the console sooner, as GameStop is not extending the same deal for any other configurations of the console and games. If you want the Switch fast come hell or high water, this may be the path for you. Otherwise, you’ll have to slowly shrivel into a small prune of anger as you watch your friends lollygag through all Zelda‘s endless beauty.
