That leaves the president of Nintendo’s American branch, Reggie Fils-Aime, know compared to Wired. Nintendo announced the Switch last Friday. The game console appears worldwide on 3 march.
“I know, because I have all the forums and messages read, that there are concerns about the supply.” Fils-Aime says that these concerns have arisen due to the shortage of copies of the Nintendo Classic Mini. He explains that the expectations for Nintendo were much less for the Nintendo Classic Mini, but that “in any case, in the United States,” new copies will be supplied.
About the Switch, says Fils-Aime: “We have publicly stated that we are worldwide two million copies shipping during launch, what is essentially the first month.” The focus of Nintendo is, according to Fils-Aime to ensure that “everyone who is a Nintendo Switch want one can buy”.
The Switch is at several Dutch webshops, including Bol.com not order more. At other stores, reservation is still possible, although it is not certain whether the order on march 3, can be provided.
