With the release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons last week and the increasing spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) there are increasing stock issues for the Nintendo Switch. The standard $300 Switch is hard to find online and at retailers, while the $200 Switch Lite is sold out on Amazon and stock is starting to run low at retailers. 

Nintendo has issued a statement to GameSpot saying they are aware of the stock shortages and they are looking to address the problem. 

"Nintendo Switch hardware is selling out at various retail locations in the U.S., but more systems are on the way," said a Nintendo spokesperson. "We apologize for any inconvenience."
