Game Informer has been lucky enough to sit down with Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime, during the interview the subject of Nintendo Switch supply was discussed. Andrew Reiner asked Fils-Aime "With Super Smash Bros. Ultimate hitting this holiday, let's talk about hardware. Switch is still selling like mad. Are you going to be sending out more during the holiday [to meet demand]?" Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releasing isn't the only title Nintendo has to consider though, Pokemon Eevee/Pikachu will also be releasing in 2018 with numerous other titles, Fils-Aime and Nintendo don't seem bothered by this at all though.

Fils-Aime replied to the question with "Absolutely. Our goal as a business is to drive momentum and create excitement to get people who have heard about the hardware, but haven't yet bought it, to jump in. Our biggest failure is when the consumer goes to the shelf and it isn't there. We're focused on making sure the supply chain is going to be robust."Fils-Aime continues and says that Nintendo as a whole is "highly confident that we are going to be able to meet the demand."

Jaks love for technology and more specifically PC gaming began at 10 years old, it was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on a old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of the typical FPS PC gamer, Jak enjoys the likes of a solid MMO, RPG, or a single-player linear story. More importantly, though, he holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
