Nintendo apologized for Switch shortages in Japan, saying it will ship more units in July and August for the Splatoon 2 launch. Nintendo also said it’s ramping up Switch production for later this year. 

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.



Cue the usual “they’re deliberately withholding stock” conspiracy bullshit from people who don’t get how manufacturing works.

They would be insane to wilfully not have more Switches on shelves right now, while the system is white hot. Anyone thinking they’re doing anything other than their best to make more is delusional.
