Nintendo reportedly plans to ramp up Switch production in 2018

by John_A

The Switch, Nintendo’s latest hybrid console is doing pretty well for the company, which expects it to outdo the Wii U’s lifetime sales within a year. The company obviously thinks so, too, according to a new report at The Wall Street Journal, which says that Nintendo plans to ramp up production of the hardware itself, beginning in April 2018.

The report claims that Nintendo is planning to make 25 million to 30 million more units of its successful Switch console over the next fiscal year. Further, Nintendo may plan for even more if this year’s holiday sales are strong, according to the WSJ‘s sources. We’ve reached out to Nintendo for confirmation and any more details and will update this post when we hear back.

The company has already built almost 8 million Switches, total, as of its latest earnings report. Sales of Nintendo software have been brisk as well with the two crown jewels of Super Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild selling two million and almost three million units so far, respectively.
