Following up on its full reveal a few hours ago, Nintendo’s new portable and home console hybrid, the Switch, is now available for pre-order.

There are a few sources available. The grey versions are available at AmazonWalmart, Best Buy and Target, while the neon version with the red and blue Joy-Cons are available from Best Buy and Target. At the time of writing, Amazon and Walmart are already sold out, though there’s a chance that’s a temporary issue with the first influx of buyers.

Meanwhile, you’ll also be able to preorder various games, including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Arms (a new robot cyborg boxing game), and the new Super Mario Odyssey. Only Zelda is confirmed to be a launch title, however; the others have a placeholder date of December 31, 2017. The games cost $59.99, though Amazon is offering a $12 discount for Prime members.

Finally, you can also pre-order additional left and right Joy-Cons (as a pair) for $79.99, the charging grip for $29.99, and the straps (with also include enhanced shoulder buttons) for $7.99.

There are a a few accessories, colors, and bundle options not yet available for pre-order, so you may have to wait a bit longer to get your hands on a Pro controller or racing wheel. Nintendo lists more buying options and accessories on its Switch hub here.
