Thinking of sending in your Joy-Con or Switch console for repair? Well, you might need to hold off for a couple of weeks.
Nintendo of America has confirmed via its website that its repair centers would stay shut for the foreseeable future – so as to slow down the transmission of the COVID-19 coronavirus. The company’s full statement was as follows:
“Due to preventive measures put in place for the COVID-19 coronavirus, and in accordance with federal and local guidelines, our repair centers are closed until further notice. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding. Once repair services resume, we will work as quickly as possible to get you playing again.
Please note that, during this closure, products sent in for repair may be returned to you as undeliverable.
If our repair center has already received your product, it will remain there until repair services resume.”
