The original Tweet got over a thousand likes.

Here is another lucky individual who also apparently got a Switch yesterday.

So far, these do appear to be isolated incidents.

Meanwhile, everyone else with pending Switch orders hopes their delivery service also screws up, bringing the console early.


    TBH I would not trust delivery to be on time. Buying in store on the date.

    This is Japan trying to steal new Zealand's "First!" post.

    That's OUR job!
