Nintendo Increasing Switch Production for Holiday Season Dylan Duarte August 28, 2017 News The Nintendo Switch has been selling out like crazy since its launch way back in March, and it hasn’t even gone through a holiday season yet. August is winding to a close, which means that the holidays are right around the corner, and Nintendo is assuring everyone that they plan on ramping up production to meet the soon-to-be-increased demand. “We’re doing everything we can to make sure everyone who wants to buy a Nintendo Switch system can do so. We will ramp up production for the holiday period, which has been factored into our forecast.” That was a statement given to the Wall Street Journal regarding the holiday demand. The official plan is to ship 10 million Switch consoles to retailers by the end of March, 2018, which is the end of the latest fiscal year, but sources in the supply chain say that Nintendo should be thinking about 18 million units. In the first four months since its debut, the Switch sold 4.7 million units, and it continues to sell out on a regular basis despite lacking certain feature that come standard in consoles nowadays, like streaming services. With those still on those horizon, along with games like Super Mario Odyssey, it’s only going to get better for Nintendo. Share This With The World!
