Nintendo’s UK general manager Nicolas Wegnez has confirmed to MCV that there won’t be any day one shortages of the Nintendo Switch in the United Kingdom. So if you haven’t pre-ordered you should be able to pick one up from your local retailer without any issues on launch day.
“It’s true pre-orders are very strong, but we still expect Nintendo Switch to be available at some retailers on Day One,” Wegnez said.
“We do expect shipments to steadily come. As we all know, this is not a sprint but a marathon, which is why we are so busy preparing strong plans for the months to come following the launch.”
