The Nintendo Switch is just over one week away from its long-awaited debut, and while pre-orders for the highly-anticipated system have been either sold out or hard to find for months, GameStop still have at least a few systems on-hand for those looking to grab one at launch.

In a press release, GameStop announced that the retailer will have a “limited supply” of Nintendo Switch units available for the system’s launch on March 3rd, 2017 for walk-in customers. GameStop explained that “customers who were not able to pre-order the system” are encouraged to attend the console’s midnight launch events at stores nation-wide to grab the system during its release, though the company warns that “they will go fast!”

Along with the units that will be available at launch, GameStop also announced that the retailer will offer “a very limited supply” of two bundle packages online. Specifically, the first bundle available will include the Nintendo Switch console, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller for $429.99 – the second bundle will include all of the previous items alongside the official strategy guide for Breath of the Wild for $454.99. The base system has an MSRP of $299.99.

The Nintendo Switch will arrive in stores on March 3rd, 2017 worldwide.
