Nintendo has issued a notice to fans in Japan this morning regarding the current status of Switch console shipments, revealing that shipping will be temporarily put on hold.
The message, which was shared on Nintendo's official Japanese Twitter account, says that both the Switch Lite and standard console (including the newly released Animal Crossing Limited Edition) will only be shipped out to those who had reserved a unit this week. Standard console shipments to retailers are not going ahead, and an update for next week's shipping schedule is expected to follow.
Towards the end of last week, a Nintendo spokesperson revealed that despite various efforts being made by the company, the ongoing stock issue situation "has not changed" and shipments are still getting delayed. It isn't just Japan that has been affected either, with the US and Europe also struggling to keep up with demand.
