Nintendo Switch flew off the shelves in Canada after its midnight release Friday.
“I found out the Walmart had four left, so I rushed in my car to that location this morning,” said Tyler Carr from Brooks, Alta.
“When I got to Walmart, they sold the last two to me and another guy.”
Electronic stores in Saskatoon sold out by 2 p.m. Friday.
Dean Pasloski, 42, pre-ordered his Nintendo Switch from the local Toys R Us.
“I just went at like 1 p.m. – I’m too old to stand in line,” Pasloski said.
The system hooks up to a console to play at home on a television, or can come out of the docking station for mobile gameplay.
“I’m excited for being able to play on the go. For instance, while I’m at work – just don’t tell my boss!” Pasloski joked.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the system’s flagship game. Other recognizable titles include 1-2-Switch, which comes with the console, and Just Dance 2017.
“There are not a lot of games for this system yet,” said tech expert Marc Saltzman. “Zelda is the best one so far.”
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe doesn’t come out until April 28 and Super Mario Odyssey won’t be available until December.
