The latest episode of Nintendo Power podcast is now live. For the latest episode, host Chris Slate is joined by Bill Hutchens and Kristen Copeland from Nintendo Treehouse, and Anthony Foster from the social media team at Nintendo of America to discuss their first two weeks with Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Here’s the full episode:

Switch is starting to become tough to find around the world, but it’s becoming an issue particularly in Japan. With the coronavirus causing delays, the main system is in short supply, so many consumers have been turning to the Switch Lite instead. However, even that dedicated portable device is starting to be hit by a lack of stock.

Nintendo commented on the situation back in February. At the time, the company said that there could be shipping delays.

Troglobytes Games have released the launch trailer for HyperParasite, which releases today for Switch.
