With the Nintendo Switch hitting store shelves next month, local distributor Core Gaming Systems wants to give members of the public a chance to get up close and personal with Nintendo’s uniquely exciting new console/handheld hybrid.

This Friday (otherwise known as 17 February 2017), Core will be hosting a “VIP session for fans”, which essentially means they’re offering a select group of people the opportunity to rub their hands and faces and earlobes all over the Switch prior to the console’s nationwide launch on 3 March.

Core’s kindly provided us a bunch of double tickets to give away to the event. You could be one of the lucky humans who gets to experience the Switch before the rest of the country get their paws on it.

If you just fell over due to excitement overload, follow me below for the details.

The event is happening at the iStore in Sandton, Johannesburg. You’ll find it at 1 Sandton Drive. There are two sessions. The first is from 15:00 to 16:30, the second is from 16:30 to 18:00. We’ve got five double tickets to each session.

If you want in, all you need to do is leave a comment below. We’ll randomly draw ten winners tomorrow afternoon. Said winners will be notified via email, and if you’re one of them, be sure to respond to us as soon as possible with your name and surname (and that of your +1) so we can add you to Core’s list of attendees.
