The Switch has been in short supply ever since it launched over three months ago. That’s a good thing and bad thing: the good is that it’s a great console and people want it, the bad is that Nintendo once again cannot meet demand for its hardware.

The company recently apologized to Japanese gamers for the short supply, and assured gamers that they were working to bring new units. Specifically, they said that shipments will increase in July and August.

Just weeks after launch it was reported that Nintendo was doubling Switch production to meet demand, but that still hasn’t been enough, as there are shortages worldwide.

The company wants to sell 110 million Switch consoles during its lifetime, and they better get production flowing faster if they want to achieve that.

You can read the apology and statement here (in Japanese, thanks to Takeshi for sending this one in!)
