    Hello,

    first of all, I Pre-Ordered the switch, 2 games (zelda and bomberman) and the Pro Controller in January. I checked for days on my E-Mail and on my Amazon-App if anything is ok with the buy of these items. Today I looked on Amazon and it says 'It's not shipped yet - Delivery is Friday (3rd March)'. So, here in germany it's now in the evening and nothing changed. I contacted the Amazon support via E-mail to just be sure that already is alright with my Order. But I don't have any request of it. Has someone the same worry about it like me who Pre-Ordered early on Amazon?

    I have had on average 80-100 Amazon orders per year for over 10 years and rarely does an order not arrive on time. Chill.

    I pre-ordered the Switch, Zelda, Bomberman, and a carry case. Out of all those, the only one saying "Preparing for Shipment" is Bomberman. Everything else still says "Not yet shipped".

    That's normal. Retailers like Amazon have to take legal things into consideration when they ship stuff out before the release date. A retailer where I am buying games from ships pre-ordered stuff a few days before the release even though the website states that it's not ready to be shipped yet. And I am loving them for it.

    There can only be one possible explanation for this: it's never coming. :switch:

    Yeah sorry that I can't be calm down about it. The coming weekend is the only one in the month where I can use the switch... That's why I'm so hyped about it^^

    My Amazon orders will either arrive on, a day after or a few days after as it appears. Hopefully Amazon will speed it up and not make me wait so long.

    My copy of BotW is sort of in the same limbo too but considering I'm in Los Angeles during the school year they're probably just avoiding shipping the game to me early :/

    So Amazon requested me. They say, that the logistic center prepares the order. If the status won't be changed at all, they'll ship it out late in the evening to get the switch etc. It's my first pre-order to a console too.

    I ordered a Neon Switch from Amazon and mine is also like that. I wouldn't worry about it.

    yea it sucks when people dont know what there talking about and they have so many departments.
    I remember having something long time ago not get mark as ship until it was out for delivery because someone didnt do what there where suppose too.

    Hopefully everyone gets there switch very close to launch day.
    I wanna see a thread about people posting picture of what they got on launch day

    If you're a Prime member they'll probably overnight it. The status on my order is the same. Expected to ship today but has yet to.
