After Holidays, Nintendo Switch Shortage in 2022 is Likely

On December 27th, Kyoto NP reported that Shuntaro Furukawa, the President of Nintendo, informed the public that Switch production may slow down during the early months of 2022. Even though the popular console was able to maintain a steady supply in 2021 while Sony and Microsoft struggled to get their current gen consoles on the market, the global semiconductor shortage still has impacted Nintendo. This may make finding a Switch more difficult, at least in the immediate future.

Furukawa’s statement backs up Nintendo’s revised sales forecast for the Switch to 24 million units–down from 25.5 million. Do not worry for Nintendo though as they anticipate growth in software sales (200 million versus the original 10 million estimate).

Have you purchased a Switch yet? Do you think this will turn the tides for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S sales? Let us know in the Boss Rush Discord channel.
