    For myself, on my order with Walmart, the order for my Switch is March the Ninth, guessing others is late or is it just myself? I'm really hoping I get mine on launch, but it does say "undefined" on the shipping for the system.

    I didn't decide to order until the online orders were closed, so in had to do instore. I don't even have a date. "We will contact you when it is ready for pickup".:ohnoes:

    I got mine in store at GameStop because the Amazon preorders were sold out, so I'm getting mine March 3. You're the first person who I've seen had their preorder delayed online so far. Hopefully your date will change though since it says "undefined" under shipping.

    Most gamestop stores are having a midnight release . Pre-order only Nintendo said.

    I can't drive there though for the midnight release though because a) I have school in the morning and b) in my state (Georgia) there is a curfew for people with their 16 year old drivers license (you get the full one at 18) that doesn't allow people to drive from 12:00 am to around 4:30 am. If it wasn't for the curfew, I would be first in line!:)

    I made a thread about this on reddit asking people the same thing. It turns out a lot of people are having the same exact issues as I was including those who just recently preordered. One guy's order page even said "Undefined by March 3rd". He also preordered about a week ago.

    I eventually called up Walmart and asked why it said March 9th. It turns out that's just an estimation. It just means you'll get it between the release date and March 9th. You might get it on release, you might not. I didn't bother asking about the free 2 day shipping thing for past orders since (at that time) it wasn't announced yet.

    *EDIT* I don't know if I can link the thread but here it is:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/nintendo/comments/5qu5yh/people_who_preordered_switch_from_walmart_whats/

    As I said other people are having the same exact issues.

    It doesn't say. That's why I have no clue. Hopefully I get it by Splatoon Launch.
