Nintendo Switch: Retailer Confirm Incoming Stocks
It is a known fact that consumers are still having a hard time getting their hands on a Nintendo Switch ever since it launched back in March 2017. The demand for the hybrid game system continues to stay high, which has led the company to announce an increase in production to have an adequate supply. However, retailers continue to encounter shortages of the latest Nintendo console. Meanwhile, one retailer apparently confirms that they will have stocks available soon.
According to a report from Game Rant, Toys "R" Us has confirmed that their Nintendo Switch stocks will arrive on Sunday, April 9, 2017. The retailer reportedly made the announcement on Twitter and confirmed that their restocks will be available in-store only. It was also noted that their inventory will only be in limited quantities and they will impose a one console per customer limit. It is expected that consumers will be lining up early before the retailers open their doors.

The update about the incoming Nintendo Switch restocks also failed to specify the allocated number of units per store, and the store locations that would have them available. It is suggested that consumers contact their local retailer to confirm if they will have the game systems available over the weekend.
It is also expected that the retailer will restock their inventories for most of the Nintendo Switch's accessories and more. Popular software like "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" is also speculated to be in high demand as consumers finally get to purchase the latest game console from Nintendo. Buyers are also advised to be wary of online offers that sound too good to be true since there have been multiple reports of scammers targeting desperate consumers.
The Nintendo Switch has received a lot of positive praises from the gaming industry and critics alike. However, its launch was also mired with quality issues like bricked systems, unresponsive Joy-Con controllers, and the most recent warping issues, as reported by Gamenguide. Consumers are obviously hoping that Nintendo addresses these quality issues before new stocks are manufactured and shipped to retailers.
