Nintendo has assured customers that more Nintendo Switch consoles are on the way amid unit shortages around the world. In a recent note delivered to Japanese customers, the company stated that those who reserved a console included the limited edition Animal Crossing: New Horizons Switch, will receive their units this week.

Standard retail shipping has been halted last and customers had no information if it would be halted again the following week. Nintendo’s official statement is that stock shipments have been “delayed.” Product shipping has been slowed down due to the COVID-19 pandemic and a spike in demand due to the crisis, as well as the release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Switch sales jumped over 150% in March across several markets, and although manufacturing of the console has also taken a hit because of the pandemic, a Nintendo rep told GamesIndustry.biz: “Nintendo Switch hardware is selling out at various retail locations in the U.S., but more systems are on the way. We apologize for any inconvenience.”

In other gaming news, Sony unveiled its new DualSense controller for the upcoming PlayStation 5.
