Given that there’s a chance we could see Switch pre-orders open up in a little over a week in the US, it was only a matter of time for other territories to start as well. GameStop Italy has Switch orders up and ready now, for what would equate to a slightly under $420. This isn’t the first time that a Switch listing has gone up via a major retailer, and judging by those and most rumors circulating it’s likely the $400 price point is a placeholder. There’s no release date given either, though looking a little further on the site might give a hint.

As it turns out, the upcoming Breath of the Wild amiibo are also represented on the site, with a release date given for April 21st. While it’s been stated the system will launch this March worldwide and Zelda hasn’t been confirmed or denied as a launch title, it’s worth noting the figures’ dates don’t match Zelda’s placeholder date of April 1st. The difference isn’t the only notable thing, as the Guardian amiibo with its many points of articulation and increased size is still at the same price point of the Archer and Horseback Link amiibo.

As all of this is preliminary and from a different country, there’s a good chance these listings can and likely will change in multiple respects. That said it’s still worth noting as we get closer and closer to the official reveal event. More than anything it’s getting the collector in me riled up for some fresh amiibo and a brand new system.
