Nintendo to Boost Produce Between 25 and 30 Million Switches Next Year

Nintendo to Boost Produce Between 25 and 30 Million Switches Next Year

Nintendo consoles can be notoriously hard to find, and the Switch's enormous popularity has made it no exception to this rule.

Nintendo's Switch console could be a bit easier to find next year. However, Nintendo's apparent willingness to increase the availability of Switch consoles makes the supply shortfalls of the NES and SNES Classics particularly confusing.

A new report reveals that Nintendo is planning a significant increase in Switch production for 2018.

As reported by The Wall Street Journal, Nintendo is aiming to now produce between 25 million to 30 million console in 2018.

Nintendo has reportedly begun informing business partners about these plans.

According to the report, this plan is "still in the early stages" as Nintendo stated, but the production increase sounds like a promising development given that the system has been in high demand for a good part of the year. If Nintendo manages to do so, it will have shipped 50 million units by April 2019, which is an impressive feat, considering one of the company's most successful home consoles, the Wii, shipped 50 million units in three years. Late last month during an earning's call, Nintendo said it believed it could sell 14 million units this year.

If Nintendo's sales forecasts are accurate, the Switch is about on-track to rival, or exceed, the PS4's sales in its first year - Sony's console sold 18.5 million units in about 13.5 months. This is to ensure more people can buy the console. Some analysts predict the Switch could ship more than 115 million in its lifetime.
