Indeed, EB Games has started sending invites to select customers, and more precisely those who are Level 4 EB World members.

If you are one, you should soon be getting an email from EB Games: it will allow you to participate in a giveaway, in order tro try and win an invite to the Nintendo Switch event. There’s 50 invites (for 2 people) to win, and you have until January 1st to register. After that, EB Games will contact the winners by phone from January 6th.

The Nintendo Switch will be released in March, worldwide. The Nintendo Switch presentation will take place on January 12th/13th.
