Best Buy Locations Hosting Nintendo Switch Midnight Launch March 2nd

Best Buy has detailed out their midnight launch plans for the incoming Nintendo Switch. Approximately 682 Best Buy locations across the land will hold midnight launch events, with all things Nintendo Switch (console, games, and accessories) going on sale at 12:01 am on March 3rd.

For those who don’t have a pre-order already, walk-in purchases will be available in limited quantities. Tickets for non-preorders are to be given out before the midnight hour, as well as the following morning for stores not holding midnight launches (via Reddit).

Those who do attend the midnight launch at Best Buy have a shot at obtaining a double-sided poster for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This comes to those who attend while supplies last, free of charge.

It’s worth noting that while the Switch will have midnight launch events, as did the Wii in 2006, the Wii U did not get such a luxury when it launched in 2012 (with one major exception). As the launch of the Switch draws near (in nearly two weeks), more retailers will reveal their own launch details. For all major announcements regarding the Switch, stay tuned.
