Nintendo confirmed yesterday that the coronavirus is impacting its business in Japan. Because of the outbreak, production and shipment delays are expected.
What about the west? Kotaku reached out to Nintendo about the situation, and the company confirmed that North America and Europe will be unaffected. Product sales, including pre-orders, will take place as planned.
The full statement reads:
We can confirm that the manufacturing of some Nintendo products for the Japanese market has been delayed due to the impact of 2019-nCoV coronavirus outbreak. Nintendo does not anticipate a significant impact on our broader global supply chain for systems and accessories at this time, and product sales in North America and Europe, including preorders, are not affected. We would like to express our concern and support for all those affected by the coronavirus during this challenging time.
