It's almost 2017, the year of the Nintendo Switch, and hype is building ahead of the upcoming January event and March release.

Just recently a Reddit thread popped up showing some in-store displays from GameStop in the US.

Also, Reddit user 'PMurphy1978' took to the /r/NintendoSwitch subreddit too, sharing their findings from a local GAME store in the UK. Somewhat infamously, GAME has been taking pre-orders for quite some time with an ambitious price.

The store had already put up advertising that promoted the Nintendo Switch, and while contents on said ads are minimal, this also helps to re-assure any remaining doubters (if there are any) on the March release.

Notably, the ad also states that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is on track for a March 2017 release. When this game will arrive has been up for debate, as rumours that localization has been hindering its release would be placing the title a couple of months after the launch of the Switch, while GameStop's focused marketing calendar stated otherwise.

All in all, it's nearly time to Switch things up in the New Year.
