Bloomberg is reporting this morning that there is expected to a shortage of Nintendo Switch units globally as soon as April as the Coronavirus takes its toll. The news was shared with the publication by people with knowledge of the company’s supply chain. This is likely to coincide with the release of Nintendo’s first big first party title of the year, the long-awaited Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Difficulty may arise with accumulating enough units for the boats departing later this month or next, which would be arriving in the U.S. in April. Shipments would not completely stop, but would be greatly reduced, according to one person.
