Coronavirus Fallout: Nintendo Extends Warranty for Nintendo Switch Console Purchases

Coronavirus Fallout: Nintendo Extends Warranty for Nintendo Switch Console Purchases

The extended warranty applies to all Switch console purchases done before March 31 via all authorised online and offline channels.

Chinese tech giant Tencent said it would extend warranty for Nintendo Switches purchased in China via official channels before March 31 by six months as sales have been hit by the coronavirus outbreak. The virus has impacted Nintendo Switch sales, logistics, promotions and user experience in China to varying degrees, the company said in a statement on its official WeChat account.

Tencent, which started selling Switches in China in December, is a local partner of Nintendo for its console games sales in the country.
