The Japanese Times is reporting that Nintendo Switch stock in the United States might not return to normal until sometime in June. As of right now it’s very hard for U.S. consumers to get ahold of a Nintendo Switch system because of production issues due to the coronavirus pandemic and increased demand due to the lockdown. The Switch Lite seems to be readily available, but the majority of consumers wish to get their hands on the standard console which allows you to play both handheld and connected to a TV.
Nintendo is now purportedly aiming to boost its production to 22 million units this fiscal year, a remarkable uptick considering the Switch is already three years old. That’s more than Nintendo sold in the U.S., its biggest market, from the console’s debut in 2017 to last year. Yet, these efforts may not sate demand anytime soon: One analyst has suggested retail stock might not catch up to demand until June.
