Shipment delays

Nintendo has warned that the coronavirus virus will result in "inevitable" production and shipment delays for the Switch in Japan, including Joy-Con controllers and Ring Fit Adventure.

It has postponed Japanese reservations for the Animal Crossing Switch (above) from 8 February although pre-orders for the game are not affected.

Nintendo told Engadget: "We can confirm that the manufacturing of some Nintendo products for the Japanese market has been delayed due to the impact of 2019-nCoV coronavirus outbreak.

"Nintendo does not anticipate a significant impact on our broader global supply chain for systems and accessories at this time, and product sales in North America and Europe, including pre-orders, are not affected. We would like to express our concern and support for all those affected by the coronavirus during this challenging time."

Apple suppliers in China like Foxconn and Quanta aren't expected to resume full production until around 10 February
