Nintendo Switch

If you even only have a passing interest in electronics, you probably already know about the current semiconduction shortages that is affecting production. This situation has impacted the production of Nintendo Switch consoles, and there may be shortages this year.

Speaking in a new interview translated by VGC, Nintendo’s president Shuntaro Furukawa provided an update on the current situation, saying that while the company has been able to secure the materials for the immediate production, there may be shortages due to the very strong demand worldwide.

We have been able to secure the necessary materials for the immediate production of semiconductors for Switches. However, in Japan and other countries, demand has been very strong since the beginning of the year, and there is a possibility of shortages at some retailers in the future. It is difficult to say how we will deal with this, but in some cases we may not be able to prepare enough for orders

If you’re thinking about getting a Nintendo Switch in the near future, and find one available in retail stores, we suggest you purchase it as soon as possible, as you may not be able to in the future due to the current situation.
