The newest Nintendo game console, Nintendo Switch, was released on March 3. The game was released with some games while the others are still soon to come. According to reports, the Nintendo Switch stocks for its worldwide release has been exhausted. This has left many fans who weren’t able to pre-order asking when they will get their hands on one.

Recently released game console Nintendo Switch is said to revolutionise the gaming industry as it allows users to take the device on-the-go. Ever since its release on March 3, it is reported to be sold out in the select stores that carried the device. However, the most concerning fact that other buyers would want to know is when the game console be in stock again. Looking back at the Wii stock debacle after its initial release, many are concerned whether they will be able to get their hands on this console.

For those who aren’t familiar with what happened during the Wii stocks, it was due to the limited supplies that Nintendo rolled it out during its launch. It took several months before anyone was able to get their hands on the Wii again. With this issue in mind, many supposed buyers of the Nintendo Switch are afraid that they will have to wait a few more months to get their hands on this console.

The news reports about the sold out stocks of Nintendo Switch should not bother a lot of people as there are new stocks that are being shipped. According to Venture Beat, Nintendo Co. has already shipped out new stocks of the console and should arrive in select stores on March 5. This means that buyers would not have to wait so long to get their hands on this console.

On the other hand, fans who were able to get their hands on a Nintendo Switch during its release have flooded the internet with gameplays and reviews. One Reddit user WatchOutRadioactiveM said that the “Switch makes gaming so much better.” However, he does also say that he was skeptical about the console. According to EuroGamer, the list of Switch games also came out on the official release date of the game. The more popular ones that were released are “Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” “Super Bomberman R,” “1-2-Switch.” “Just Dance 2017.”

The New York Times writer Brian Chen said that the Switch is a “mediocre as a portable gaming device, with short battery life and an OK screen.” However, he also said that it “excels as a powerful and compelling home console.”

The Nintendo Switch is available in two colours: grey and neon red/blue.
