Animal Crossing Themed Switch Delayed

With Animal Crossing: New Horizons set to release in March and the most recent themed Nintendo Switch announced, pre-orders have been moved from the 8th February to an unknown date.

It was reported that the most recent coronavirus outbreak has impacted Nintendo's supply chain for Japan.

Nintendo released the following statement:

"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 preorders, are not affected. We would like to express our concern and support for all those affected by the coronavirus during this challenging time."

It's unknown when they will be made available again. This does not seem to affect North American and European distribution.
