Nintendo to boost Switch production

Nintendo to boost Switch production

Nintendo is increasing its production of Nintendo Switch consoles to 30 million units this fiscal year, according to Nikkei Asia. According to Nikkei’s sources, Nintendo has approached multiple suppliers to speed up production, something that has been difficult due to the global semiconductor shortage, which has also affected the supply of PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles.

In February, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa said that the company had assured itself of an adequate supply of components, but that did not mean that Switch production would not be affected in the future.

“We have also experienced higher than expected demand this year, and there is a possibility that there will be a shortage of certain products, especially in Japan,” Furukawa said. This production target is a highlight for the hybrid device, as Nintendo hopes to take full advantage of the demand created during Covid-19, as more people have started gaming while staying home.

If Nintendo is able to sell the 30 million copies it produces this year, it would mean that the Switch overtakes the Wii as Nintendo’s best-selling console of all time. The Nintendo Switch has sold about 80 million copies as of the end of 2020; the Wii reached 110 million copies in its lifetime.
