EB Games announces midnight launch locations for Nintendo Switch

by Daniel VuckovicFebruary 15, 2017

EB Games has announced the list of stores holding a midnight launch for the Nintendo Switch. There’s a lot of them. Each store is doing things a little bit different, while you’re probably going to get a huge party at Swanston Street, other stores may just be open. Be sure to check with your local store to see what’s the go.

Unfortunately for those in the backward states (like myself) you’ll have to wait until 8am the next day to get your hands on it. Thanks local government trading regulations.

Below is the list from EB, but be sure to check their Facebook page as they may change details.

    So if my local store opens at 9pm, what do you guys reckon would be the best time to head down there?
    Also, what’s the accepted etiquette with regards to holding someone’s place in the queue? My mate’s coming with me but he finishes work at 10pm, and I said he could meet me there.

      Dude, I’d just rock up the same time as your mate. 3hrs in line is a hefty wait. I’m assuming that you both have already called your store to confirm that you will be there to pickup at the midnight launch, so you won’t miss out ?

      Although, if you haven’t already called your store, I’d pray to the Nintendo gods tonight and call your store as soon as it opens tomorrow and hopefully they will be able to hook you up.

      Good luck ?

        Yeah, thankfully I was in there paying off some preorders the day they started calling customers about the Switch release. All sorted for midnight launch. 🙂

        Thanks much for the response.

    Can confirm that the World Square (NSW) store will be trading all day (9am – 1am) due to late trading hours in their centre.

    WA is such a nanny state sometimes.

    Love the midnight launches. Felt pretty old and a bit out of place at the Wii midnight launch – I was 48yo then. Now, at 59yo, I’m still going to be there to pick up my pre-ordered Switch at midnight. Love it!! 🙂
