Nintendo says coronavirus epidemic is impacting Switch production

The coronavirus outbreak has been ongoing for the past month. It’s a serious issue as the virus has already taken many lives. People all over the world have been affected, but it’s been particularly problematic in China – where it originated from.

Health stands as the most significant aspect of this situation, though it also seems that Nintendo has been affected. Global president Shuntaro Furukawa said during a financial results briefing today that Switch production in China is seeing some impact from the coronavirus epidemic.

Furukawa did not elaborate further, so it’s unclear if future Switch shipments will be delayed.
