Nintendo believes the Joy-Con connectivity issues encountered by some Switch owners could be the result of wireless interference.

The much-awaited release of Nintendo Switch finally comes, but the consumers' demand might not be anticipated. To make a direct comparison, this is double than what Wii U was sold in 2013, which stood at 40,000 units, but less than what was done by Nintendo 3DS (113,000 units).

Tesco, on the other hand, advised the game enthusiasts that they should have pre-ordered Nintendo Switch before it is officially unveiled.

Looking back at the Nintendo 64, GameCube, and Wii, those systems had Mario 64, Super Smash Bros. At present, you can only use one Joy-Con to play a game, rather than using two at the same time to act like a complete gamepad.

Those concerns aside, the demand for the console is huge, with lines reported from Japan to Great Britain and across the United States after the product debuted in stores. But it also seems to be suffering from some early woes. They also congratulated the success of the first game title on the Switch which is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Will Nintendo be able to fix this notable problem?

Put simply, users are advised to place the Switch out in the open, make sure there isn't any other device that can interfere with the connection, and check whether or not the console is updated. There has been some worry that the Switch would turn out to be another NES Classic scenario, where stock is still impossible to come by even though we're five months out from launch.

Nintendo concludes that "in most cases it will be enough to move these devices three to four feet away from the Nintendo Switch console and/or Joy-Con controllers". This is a common question we are hearing as gamers spend more time using the new Nintendo Switch. This console is meant to be taken out when convenient. He went on to say that the Switch's launch was "one of the strongest and most successful gaming console launches for GameStop in the last several years".
