Nintendo Stops Shipping Switch Consoles
Nintendo Co. has suspended the domestic shipments of its popular Nintendo Switch video game console due to a production delay caused by the coronavirus outbreak, company officials said Wednesday.
The company has not decided when shipments will resume.
Nintendo will continue Switch shipments for customers who had placed orders and European and U.S. markets, where sufficient inventories are available.
It has also halted domestic shipments of the Switch Lite portable game machine.
Nintendo outsources production of the game consoles to plants in China and Vietnam. The company announced a delay in shipments of the products in February due to the impact of the coronavirus outbreak.
Production has yet to fully recover.
