Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa has warned fans and investors of the Kyoto-based company that he expects supply shortages on the Nintendo Switch family of systems to continue in 2022 due to the global shortage of components, which is a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Mr. Furukawa believes that sales of the Switch family’s systems at the end of the year were strong with the release of the Nintendo Switch (OLED model), and he also mentioned that due to logistical problems caused by the pandemic, the company had to send a row Change console with flights to the US just before the big Black Friday sales period.
“I can not say that I was able to supply enough for the demand after Black Friday and after the beginning of the year. It depends on the demand, but as far as I was concerned, there will be an effect that I can not make as many as I would like. ”
