Nintendo expects the Switch's ongoing supply shortage to continue in 2022, impacting the ability to purchase one.
According to Nintendo of Japan President Shuntaro Furukawa, the games industry giant is expecting Switch supply to remain strained into 2022. The issue stems from the limited supply of semiconductor chips, an issue that has affected game consoles, vehicles, and other electronics. There's also the problem of logistics, as shipping is globally impacted by the coronavirus, especially as the Omicron variant spreads. The Switch supply will reportedly be "stagnant after the beginning of 2022."
