Nintendo’s highly-anticipated new console, Switch arrives at Toys“R”Us stores nationwide


WAYNE, NJ, 2017-Mar-06 — /EPR Retail News/ — Gamers, rejoice! This Friday, March 3, Nintendo’s highly-anticipated new console, Switch, will hit shelves at Toys“R”Us stores nationwide – no preorder required! A combination home console and handheld, Switch delivers an entirely new way to play whenever and wherever you want. At home, Nintendo Switch rests in a dock that connects to your TV and lets you play to your heart’s content – right from the comfort of your couch. You can also take Switch on-the-go – just remove from the dock and instantly transition to handheld mode. If one toy expert’s opinion isn’t enough, check out our President of Play getting a sneak peak at the game before it hits shelves!

Now, before you skip out of the store gleefully holding onto your beloved new console, don’t forget – games for Switch are sold separately! The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart are two must-haves if you’re a fan of the classics like me. And, if you like playing in a group, Toys“R”Us will have additional Joy-Con controllers in stock to ensure no one is left out.

Nintendo fans have been waiting patiently (well, for the most part) for this one, so if it’s on your list I suggest getting in line at your local Toys“R”Us store early this Friday (doors open at 9 am). As a resident toy expert, I’ve been around for several of these console launches, and with limited quantities, I’m expecting Switch to sell out faster than a Mushroom Cup race. And, if you miss out, keep checking back with your local store – I have a feeling more will be hitting our shelves in the near future!  About Nicole Hayes: Nicole spent her childhood using her imagination to bring to life everything from the world of LEGOs and the original Nintendo’s Super Mario Brothers, to My Little Ponies and Rainbow Brite.
