Nintendo Offers First Look At Switch eShop

Nintendo Offers First Look At Switch eShop

If you already have a Nintendo Network ID from a 3DS or Wii U, you can merge your funds into your Switch eShop.

"It's true pre-orders are very strong but we still expect Nintendo Switch to be available at some retailers on Day One", Nintendo's Nicolas Wegnez explained.

Pocket Gamer, which has its pulse on the British gaming scene like no one else, has a roundup of Twitter reactions to this unfortunate news, and as you might guess, it's not pretty.

My prediction is that the Switch will be a moderate to good success and then Nintendo will look to replace it with a new model in about three years. The preorder era might be ultimately more convenient for consumers who would rather just know if they were getting a product or not, but it lacks a certain sense of excitement.

Switch launches on Friday, in case you've been under a rock. Some customers of GAME, the United Kingdom equivalent to GameStop, are apparently being informed that their Switch pre-orders are being canceled. When you open the eShop, the Switch will confirm the active user (a nod to the eight potential user accounts you can create on a single console).

Both the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One versions of "Stardew Valley" were released late past year, but its highly anticipated multiplayer feature will be coming to Nintendo Switch first, according to Nintendo. Target locations could have about 35 units per store, at least according to a story in the International Business Times.

According to Express.Co.Uk, Amazone is now sold out, although third-party sellers are bound to start listing consoles tomorrow.

Argos is now completely sold out, they have some Nintendo Bundles left and they'll be released on March 31, 2017.
