    Has anyone ordered a Pre-Ordered a Nintendo Switch?

    If so, what did you order with it? I have it for delivery 3rd March but I did not purchase any games other than Mario Odyssy and Streetfighter which are not out until Autumn. Does anyone know if there will be a virtual store where you can download games e.g. Super Mario World, FZero etc?

    You not wanting to play BOTW then?

    Supermod

    Hey I've read the Nintendo eShop is also launching tomorrow but the price for digital games will likely be more expensive than physical. No news on Virtual Console for those titles you mention so don't bank on them being available.

    I've gone for Zelda and 1-2 Switch plus Mario Kart 8 Deluxe pre-ordered for April.

    yep back on the 13th Jan

    I'm sorry, i don't understand - you preordered a console for 2 games out at the end of the year? ... why?

    There will be a Mario SKU, so just hold off for that?

    Zelda is the biggest game the switch has day one and will be for a very long time. If you haven't planned on getting that, that I'm really confused as to why you want one?

    The VC won't be there at launch sadly - that was to be expected though (typical Nintendo)

    Zelda and bomberman!

    I'm getting Zelda, and will be buying Snipperclips and Setsuna on launch.

    I did not want it to sell out and find it difficult to get hold off. But I dont think i run the risk of it being out of stock now?
    I only researched into finding out Mario Odyssey wasnt going to be out until later in the year a few days ago. I've never been a Zelda fan, can anyone recommend it for someone who is not a fan?

    I may just order Mario Kart for now and Zelda if people can recommend it

    I am thinking of getting Bomberman as well. I really hope i can get Mario World if it's available on the virtual store.

    It would be a shame not to be able to get Super Mario World and all the old classics on the SNES as they were brilliant.

    Got a grey switch, 256gb micro SD card, Limited ed breath of the wild, 1 2 switch, bomberman, the binding of Isaac physical copy preordered from Amazon.com. Also put money aside for fast rmx, I am setsuna and snipperclips at launch. I also ordered the pro controller, archer link and wolf link Amibo, a case and a tempered glass screen protector. All bought and paid for. Just waiting for it all to turn up now, super hyped.

    I have mine ready for pickup at midnight at Smyths Peterborough. I have been waiting years to finally play Zelda and now it's so close!

    I ordered the neon console. With zelda. I did have the limited edition pre ordered with game but they randomly cancel the order for me about a week ago so I have the standard edition now.

    Gonna pick up snipperclips too looks very fun for the cost. And then wait for Mario Kart. Can't wait for Splatoon and Mario oddesy amongst others. But very excited for zelda on the fly.

    Not gonna pick up a sd card just yet. I'll leave it for now. Same with the pro controller.


    Anyone know anywhere other than play Asia where I can pick up the BOTW amiibos?

    You can still get them on the Nintendo UK website can't you?

    got the Console and BOTW arriving friday, and have preordered Mario Kart, Iwill probably order 1 2 switch next pay day.
    everyone i know who got to try out the switch were more than impressed so hoping it sells well.

    Ah, yes I think I may as well order it since I did not order anything for the launch other than the console. Hope it is decent.

    The latest Zelda game by all accounts is a quite a departure from some of the previous games in the series. It is a very large non-linear open world 'sand box' game with lots of freedom to approach this virtual world in any way you see fit. It has an incredible art style and story with great combat and ace physics engine. If you like games like Skyrim, GTA5, Witcher 3 etc. then you will almost certainly like Zelda BOTW. Early indications are that this game is Game of the Year material (if not game of the decade). My opinion is: just buy it!

    ​Yea I wanted to go all out because I don't have any consoles anymore just a gaming PC. I got rid of the ps4 and Xbox one when I built the PC because it was just pointless keeping them for the few exclusives I wanted. The switch is different though because I will be using it in portable mode 90% of the time. My theory is PC+ Nintendo and you aren't missing much worth playing.

    About a year ago I was the same about Zelda. Played Minish Cap and then played Wind Waker and i'm now frantically trying to get Twilight Princess finished before Friday (not happening!). Maybe give it a go and see how you get on. The games hold their value pretty well so if you don't enjoy it just sell it on.

    Yup with BOTW

    Oh sorry I didn't think to add them to basket to check

    Yes,
    Ive got zelda and pro controller for launch day
    Lego city undercover for april 7th and mario kart 8 for end april.

    Getting BotW for the WiiU as it will hold its value better and will be a better gameplay experience with the pad. (Until i use he switch of course)

    That's fine. I managed to find d a bokoblin in stock on amazon so 1/3 isn't too bad. I really wanted the link archer the most. Hopefully they get a restock after Friday.

    1/3? There's five BOTW Amiibo: Link archer, Link rider, Zelda, Guardian and Bokoblin. Plus the older LofZ amiibo also have functions in BOTW e.g. ocarina, smash, 8 bit link. But the best one is Wolf link which grants you a wolf side kick in BOTW.
    I have heard that there are new Legend of Zelda amiibo coming out too.

    Yup I realise my mistake. I was sleep typing at 3.30am with my last messages. I'm hoping for a re stock at some point in the next week. I don't know how it usually goes with the amiibos and getting new stocks I'm a new ish collector

    I got a stock alert week before last from Nintendo shop. I had been on their website looking at the various out of stock BOTW Amiibo and the next day i received an email asking 'is this what you are looking for?'. The website cookies had tracked my nintendo website activity and sent me a handy email letting me know they were back in stock. Normally i would have been a bit p+ssed at this, but it was a happy incident on this occasion. maybe allow cookies and have a browse on the Nintendo website. Amazon also do stock alerts but are very hit and miss. I found Bokoblin and link archer coming back into stock last week but no alerts were received by Amazon! Might want to try Smyths - they are open at midnight for Switch/BOTW launch. Not sure if you need to have pre-ordered anything to get in at Midnight but might be worth finding out a) if you can get in and b) if they are expecting BOTW Amiibo stock.
