If you haven't been able to buy a Nintendo Switch lately, don't worry, neither has anyone else. In another case of Nintendo not realizing the demand would be so high for one of their products, the company has come out and formally apologized to all of their fans for not being able to have enough for sale. Nintendo's official Japanese page posted this apology notice today for fans and retailers to read. We have a translated version for you below.
Thank you very much for your continued patronage of our products.
The "Nintendo Switch main unit" which we released on March 3, 2017 has continued to be in short supply in the entire domestic market since its launch.
We apologize sincerely apologize to our customers and dealers for their inconvenience.
Currently we continue to ship every week and we are working to deliver as many as one product to our customers. Also, in July and August,
we will increase shipment volume this month, including continued shipment of "Nintendo Switch Splatoon 2 set".
For autumn and beyond, we will continue to work to ensure that as many products as possible can be delivered to our customers towards the end of the year, such as further strengthening our production system, we appreciate your understanding.
