Considering how important and integral the Joy-Cons are to the future success of the Switch, Nintendo can not afford to have its new console exhibit any connection issues. Initial sales on this have been phenomenal.
Despite this slight setback, however, Nintendo is reportedly doubling their efforts to produce more Switch units. It is mentioned that the Nintendo is going to fill up the shelves again and soon stocks will be updated on the stores like GAME, GameStop & Amazon. With this, the company promised to ship 16 million units during the 2017-2018 fiscal year.
It's unclear at this time exactly how many units are affected, but there is an annoying problem with at least some Joy-Con controllers that has been plaguing gamers ever since the console was first released. The total number of fix or replacement requests for Nintendo Switch, including for Joy-Con, is consistent with what we've seen for any new hardware Nintendo has launched.

Another clue regarding the possibility of Nintendo offering a cloud save option for Switch users in the near future came from the President of the American branch of Nintendo himself, Reggie Fils-Aime.
Express mentioned GameStop have confirmed that they will be getting a new shipment of Nintendo Switch Stock by March 22. That way, you'll get to be on the look out for newer Nintendo Switch games, too, and maybe even revamped and better units since we've been hearing issues about the Nintendo Switch's Joy-Cons and docks.
"GameStop continues to see strong demand from customers who are looking to purchase the Nintendo Switch system", said Eric Bright, GameStop's senior director of merchandising. The stock availability has been sporadic and most will have to rely on sheer luck to get one at original MSRP of $300.
