Your first crack at the Nintendo Switch comes this Friday

Preorders will open at 9AM Eastern

We're all eagerly awaiting Nintendo's Switch Event on Thursday, which will reveal a lot of details about the system. It's kind of incredible that the system is less than three months away, yet we still don't know the price, release date, or launch titles for the upcoming console.

One thing we do know is that you'll be able to submit a preorder starting this Friday. Nintendo's flagship store in New York City tweeted this earlier today:

Presumably, most other North American retailers will be opening their preorders at the same time. 

If you have any interest in getting a Switch, you may want to preorder sooner rather than later. I find it suspicious that no specific numbers are being mentioned. If the NES Classic edition is any indication, it may be a while before supply catches up with demand. 

While you're waiting for preorders to open, you could always play Switch reaction Bingo during the Nintendo direct. We'll have live coverage when the event starts on Thursday.
