Nintendo has warned customers of multiple sites impersonating the Japanese video game company's official website and pretending to sell Nintendo Switch consoles at significant discounts.
This rare warning was issued last week via the gaming multinational's corporate site, which also hints at the severity of the issue.

"We have confirmed the existence of a fake website that impersonates Nintendo's homepage," Nintendo also tweeted on Friday.
"Please be careful not to mistake it for our website, and do not purchase products from fake websites."
