The coronavirus is being the subject of these weeks, causing a huge impact also on the economy in China. It was already feared that some companies would see the production of their products interrupted. One of the products whose production is affected is the Nintendo Switch. The company has confirmed that there are production delays due to the coronavirus in China.
The production of the Nintendo Switch affected by the coronavirus
The company apologizes for these production delays. They also say they are following their evolution closely, but it is not known when they will return to normal.
For now it seems that these delays in the production of the Nintendo Switch affect only the units produced in China and sold in Japan. So users in other countries should have nothing to worry about, at least for now. Since it is not known in which way the total production of the popular console will be affected due to the coronavirus.
The company has said that they will be attentive to the evolution of the situation. Therefore, there is likely to be more news soon, about the state of production. Most likely, this situation will expand for a few weeks.
If the production also starts to affect the Nintendo Switch units sold in other countries, the company could have problems, since its revenues would be reduced significantly. In addition, this problem now comes that a new edition with the colors of Animal Crossing: New Horizons will be released, although it seems that this release is maintained.
