Retailers are running out of the Nintendo Switch, but don’t worry, Nintendo’s aware and more’s on the way.
If you haven’t already snagged yourself a Nintendo Switch, you may be hardpressed to find one. As COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to spread all across the country and beyond, the regular Switch model is seeing a shortage. The recent release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons is likely a huge factor in its shortage.
If you can deal with the console only being mobile, without the ability to dock and play on your TV, though, the Switch Lite seemingly hasn’t been affected as much. That said, it’s still sold out on Amazon with the only expectations being third-party sellers.
If you can hold out, though, you may be able to get your hands on a regular Switch soon enough. In a statement to GameSpot, Nintendo assured fans they are well aware of the console shortage and are working on mending it.
“Nintendo Switch hardware is selling out at various retail locations in the U.S., but more systems are on the way. We apologize for any inconvenience.”
At least they’re aware of the situation and are trying to remedy this. Many people use gaming as a means of escapism from the harsh reality and right now with the virus causing many states and even whole countries into lockdown and giving stay-at-home orders, what else can you do?
Are you relieved of this? Have you already gotten your hands on the Switch you wanted?
