The Nintendo Switch consoles are one of the popular hand-held consoles among the gamers. Since the past few months, the company has been dealing with low-stock levels of the consoles across the globe due to the coronavirus pandemic. Since the manufacturing units remained shut for a couple of months, the stocks remained low. The supply issues had started surfacing in the month of February, 2020, but now it seems things are finally getting back to normal.
There were also reports in between that the demand of the console had gone up a bit during the lockdown period as many people remained at home and gaming remained one of the ways to keep them engaged for a longer time. A recent report stated that many of the fans were left disappointed when they could not secure a console during the lottery sale during the recent weeks and that had hinted that Nintendo has almost fully recovered from the supply constraints. This also hinted that the Nintendo production has got back to its full capacity but the demand of the new systems continue to remain high than the stock in the stores.
On the other hand a spokesperson from Nintendo has clarified that the production of Nintendo is slowly returning to normal. However, the representative did not have a solid answer on when the stock levels would get back to normal and would fulfill the demands of the gamers. The situation during the lockdown had worsened when the retailers had started exploiting the customers and had priced the console high due to its demand.
But now it seems like things are getting back to normal and the stores across the globe will soon have plenty of stock to be maintained and will also discourage the retailers to take advantage of the situation. The stocks might get back to normal in the upcoming weeks or even months.
