Nintendo Switch rumours

According to the latest report from the WallStreet Journal, Nintendo have started shifting some of the production of the Nintendo Switch to an unspecified Southeast Asia country. The goal of this move is to limit the impact of possible US tariffs on Chinese-made electronics.

Apparently, production in Southeast Asia has already started for both the current Nintendo Switch model and the two new models that were mentioned in a previous report. Their sources did not provide any volume figures, but specified that Nintendo wanted to have enough units to sell in the United States when the new models are finally ready for launch.
