Can’t find a Nintendo Switch? Here’s some good news for you. – Chicago Tribune

Since the Nintendo Switch has hit shelves, it’s been hard to get a hold of it across the country. The console has been either out of stock or egregiously marked up at most major retailers — with asking prices on eBay going for more than $4,000.

But if you’ve been dying for a Nintendo Switch to call your own, there’s some relief in store. GameStop on Friday announced it will be getting new shipments of Nintendo’s new $300 console and expects a fresh supply to hit shelves around March 22.

GameStop, the country’s largest video game retailer, has had trouble keeping up with demand, said Eric Bright, the company’s senior director of merchandising, in a statement. Nintendo hasn’t released actual sales numbers, but said that the Switch had the fastest-selling debut of any of its consoles in the U.S. The demand has been so great that the company plans to double the production of the console, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Sure, we haven’t seen widespread Black Friday-style fist fights over these consoles. But the fact that GameStop issued a press release about a restock — normally a mundane event — certainly says something.
