Nintendo is planning to shift some of the production of its Switch gaming console to Vietnam from China, Reuters has reported.

The shift is aimed at diversifying risks, a spokeswoman said, according to the report.

It comes as China and the US have been embroiled in a trade war over the past year, placing tariffs on billions of dollars worth of one another's goods.
