Nintendo Switch Midnight Opening March 3rd?

I read somewhere that Best Buy in the USA is doing this for sure and that they may be doing it here in Canada as well. If it's true, could someone provide a link to the list of Canadian stores that will be open for a midnight launch please and thanks.

Re: Nintendo Switch Midnight Opening March 3rd?

As much as I love Midnight openings; This makes no sense for the Nintendo Switch.  Unless there will me many Consoles available for purchase in store why would anyone want to lineup for a Midnight Launch to purchase games when they dont even have their consoles shipped yet?

 

If History is any indicator I remember not preordering the Wii & Wii U; Hence having to lineup at bestbuy on launch day (overnight/early morning) for the chance at obtaining a console which were very limited (15 or under).

Um... **competitor** are doing midnight launch for Zelda... because a) Wii U release is the same date b) you can pick up your Switch at the same time.

Will there be Nintendo Switch Consoles available in Store on Friday March 3?

I am willing to line up all night, if necessary, but want to make sure there will be a console available in the morning!

I am wondering this too, I made a thread about this because I am willing to wait in line, but have no idea if they plan to keep some consoles for people that show up on launch day and have no preorder.
