Nintendo chief confirms chip crisis affects Switch production

As you know due to the impact of the epidemic, many technology companies are struggling to produce their products due to the shortage of semiconductors. Especially cars, phones, consoles, and video cards are the products most affected by the semiconductor crisis in this process. Nintendo joined the ranks, after Sony and Microsoft.

In recent months, Nintendo has issued a warning that they may also be affected by the chip crisis. Recently, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa said the company would not be able to produce as many Switches as it would like later this year.

According to the company’s report for the latest fiscal quarter, 28.83 million Switches were shipped in the past year. This year, it shipped 25.50 million Switches, surpassing the Nintendo Wii’s sales. In this way, Nintendo’s best-selling console will be the Switch.

Recently, it was announced that the Switch has sold more than 85 million copies so far.
