TOKYO (Reuters) – Japan’s Nintendo Co Ltd said on Thursday delays to production and shipping of its Switch console and Joy-Con controllers due to the coronavirus epidemic are “unavoidable”.
Nintendo CEO Shuntaro Furukawa said last week production in China of the popular device was being impacted by the virus.
