Yes and you will need to factor in the online subscription cost as well I think.

I very much might get a switch and this, and online play means BeeX can babysit Cassidy and Sundance.

Is GAME the best place?

It rarely is. What sort of bundle are you looking for? Animal Crossing? Mario?

But it’s literally pence less than the Game version so doesn’t matter either way.

Had my download code this morning, so it's all installed now. I did try on the off-chance that it would let me play it early, but nope.

I bought it from the Nintendo shop (I had a voucher to use on there) so its been pre-loaded for a few days - and yes if you click to start it wants to check into the server to see if its released yet and then gives you a 'computer says no' message :-(

On the plus side its Wednesday , so we only need to wait until after midnight tomorrow !

Boo! Tried ordering this last night. Thought it would be easy as the Game store said 'In Stock'. Unclick on their bundle suggestions. Add to Basket. Click Basket. "Item out of stock, would you like to say buy this ugly grey Nintendo tote bag instead?"

FFS.

Everywhere else out of stock. Gngh. Wonder if there'll be any on the shelves themselves tomorrow?

For the sake of an extra... tenner(?) please consider staying home and buying it through the online shop.

I don't believe Pete owns a Switch yet so this could be a problem.

I don't believe I'll be getting my copy of this tomorrow. I've had no shipping notification or anything since I ordered it.

Who'd you order from? If they post before 3pm you've got a good chance. My TheGameCollection dispatch notice came through at 8:30 this morning.

Will do if I can. Aside from my office at work I've already reduced all outside contact this week (walking to work now - three miles!) to one friend who's also reduced all outside contact.

This is the first time I've even heard of it.

Dude, I live like Giles from Buffy in a house full of books, unless it's Steam, Beex or Youtube I'm largely ignorant.

I haven't had a mess with it yet but it looks like this could be a way to import your own flags into the game? I've just seen Nintendo life tweet about it.

Had a quick dabble with the game just to get past the initial setup. My island, Flump, has cherries. :)

Friend code is SW-4077-9877-7294 although I haven't looked at the multiplayer side of things yet.

Are folks going to time travel to just unlock the other side of the island? My knitting friend had and I’m tempted to nip to tomorrow and straight back just so I can get the museum, my vaulting like and potential visitors...

My tent floor's covered in feesh waiting for Blathers to turn up tomorrow. Helen's copy hasn't arrived today, so I've managed to avoid the temptation of time travelling by giving her my cart to start her island up.
