Nintendo Says the Switch Shortage Is "Definitely Not Intentional"

After a successful marketing campaign for the Switch and a variety of E3 game announcements that included Metroid Prime 4 and a Pokemon RPG, lessons have clearly been learned after the Wii U debacle.

Psyonix announced Rocket League will be released for the Nintendo Switch later this year, and IGN spoke with Vice President Jeremy Dunham and Producer Bobby Garza for more details about the Switch version.

Nintendo has since clarified with GamesBeat that Scibetta meant "2018 and beyond".

Nintendo Switch consoles have been flying off store shelves faster than Nintendo can get new ones onto those shelves since the hybrid portable/home console launched on March 3.

Another bit of good news for potential buyers of the Nintendo Switch is that GameStop will get some units of the console this week. We feel god about the lineup for this year and beyond. Now it sounds like both games might be out as early as next year. Simply go to the "Find Controller" option and select any of the controllers paired to the Switch to make it vibrate and produce a honk-like sound. Scibetta defended those actions to Ars as a way of protecting how Nintendo's characters are represented.

"We needed to make sure they understood there was a great console experience coming, in addition to Metroid: Samus Returns coming on Nintendo 3DS".

"We don't think people want to squint that much to see four players on an undocked system", Dunham said.

It's no secret that there's been concerns about Switch supplies, considering that analysts have predicted more shortages throughout this year, but Nintendo has posted on their Japanese site that they are working to increase supply.

As we move into autumn, Nintendo says that it will "continue to work to ensure that as many products as possible" are available to consumers.

ARMS is probably best described as if you took the insane style of a more chaos-infused fighting game series like Powerstone, turned it fully 3D and gave the characters arms that stretched most of the way across the arena.
