You can press your luck by trying to pick up a Nintendo Switch on launch day if you like, but it might be easier just to preorder one. Unfortunately, most of the preorders sold out within hours of opening up last month, but on Friday, Best Buy replenished its stock of preorders. With just a month left until the console releases, this could be one of your last chances to preorder a Nintendo Switch. So act fast.

Best Buy didn’t share how many additional Nintendo Switch preorders were available, but did note that there are “limited quantities,” so don’t expect the preorders to last through the weekend (or even the day).

Sadly, only the Nintendo Switch bundle with grey Joy-Con controllers is available on Best Buy’s website at the moment, but if you’re that desperate to buy colorful controllers, you can pick them up separately.

Last month, we had a chance to go hands on with the Switch and found it to be infinitely more compelling than the Wii U. Nintendo still has a lot of work to do when it comes to bringing a respectable amount of content to the Switch, but from a hardware perspective, there’s no denying the appeal of a hybrid console.

Thankfully, while Nintendo might not have many games ready for the console’s launch window, indie developers are helping to bolster the lineup with games of their own. We’re sure to see more at E3 2017.

The Nintendo Switch will be available on March 3rd for $299.99.
