Consumers are lining up in Japan just for a chance to get a Switch

Switch demand continues to outpace supply across the world. This is particularly evident in Japan, where consumers are having to participate in lotteries just for a chance to obtain a system of their own.

The Bic Camera below had just 37 units in stock. 10 gray systems were available along with 27 for the neon version. This is one area that handled the distribution of Switch stock via lottery.

It’s not only at this single location where people are lining up. Similar photos have been snapped at other places across Japan.

Getting more stock out there may continue to be a problem for Nintendo. The industry as a whole is said to be facing a shortage of parts needed to make certain devices, including Switch.
