Nintendo tweeted quote A limited quantity of pre-orders for the Nintendo Switch will begin on January 13th at 9 AM while supplies last at Nintendo NYC, unquote. They're talking about the Nintendo World Store in New York City which at this point probably already has a 500 trillion mile long It's the first stop on Nintendo's official North American Switch Tour, which plans to hit six major cities over the weeks leading up to the Switch's official launch in March of 2017. Nintendo is also holding an online event before preorders begin so you'll know what you're buying into in a little more detail.
