Large Japanese retailer expects upcoming shortages

One of the largest retailers in Japan, Geo, has made a shocking proclamation about the Nintendo Switch.

Shortage alerts

The company has put up notices at hundreds of stores across Japan, informing customers that due to the rapid release of popular titles such as Pokemon Let’s GO Pikachu/Eevee and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate , they are expecting the Nintendo Switch hardware to be in shortage very soon.

The word “shortage” is not something anyone wants to hear in Japan.

It brings back painful memories of thousands of people lining up to enter a lottery to buy a Nintendo Switch. Yeah you read that right … it was simply that bad in the region.

We will have to wait and see whether those dark days are going to return to the land of the rising sun.

For Europe shortage are not expected BUT you are advised to get a Nintendo Switch before the storm the is Pokemon and Smash starts just to be 100% sure.
