UPDATE: An official tweet from Toys”R”Us confirms Nintendo Switch units will be restocked in stores across the US tomorrow, May 19th!


According to reports from several sources, Toys”R”Us will be having a Nintendo Switch restock this Friday, May 19th. The retailer isn’t saying how many units will be available per store, so there’s no telling exactly how limited “limited quantities” will be.

If you were planning on purchasing one from your home, then you’ll miss out. This restock is said to be available in-store only and representatives from Toys”R”Us are already recommending to line up early on Friday morning.

For those still out on the hunt who have a color preference (either gray or neon), we recommend calling your local Toys”R”Us to see if those working there know which units will be in stock.
