Nintendo Switch Will Be Back In Stock On Friday At Toys ‘R Us For Mario Kart 8 Launch
A representative for the company told GameSpot that all stores across the United States will have a “limited inventory” of the consoles this Friday, March 28.
“Like our previous inventory drops of this hot item, we recommend that customers get in line at their local store before the doors open at 10 AM on Friday,” the spokesperson explained.
Toys ‘R Us won’t be the only store with Switch units in stock on Friday. Earlier this week, Best Buy announced that it would have consoles available on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe launch day.
In Russia, Nintendo will offer a Switch bundle that comes with a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, but this is exclusive to that country. Unlike the Wii and Wii U, there are no bundled games with the Switch.
GameSpot’s Mario Kart 8 Deluxe review scored the game an 9/10.
“The smallest changes in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe refine an already great racing game,” reviewer Kallie Plagge said. “But the huge overhaul to the original’s afterthought of a Battle Mode is a chaotic, varied opportunity to play very differently than in Grand Prix mode and well worth reinvesting yourself in Mario Kart 8 on Switch.”
