There is no doubt that Nintendo Switch has defied expectations and has been very successful and with the increasing popularity of the hybrid console, Nintendo has reportedly ramped up the Nintendo Switch production to somewhere between 25 and 30 million units.
The news comes from The Wall Street Journal, who revealed that Nintendo is about to ramp up Nintendo Switch production for its next fiscal year which will start in April 2018. According to the report, Nintendo Switch production could be ramped even more but, it will depend on what happens in the Holiday season.
The report suggests that Nintendo boss Tatsumi Kimishima believes that the demand for the console will increase even more following the Holiday season and is waiting a bit to see what happens before deciding the final number of the console’s production.
Also, Nintendo itself has stated that it will ramp up the production of the console for the upcoming Holiday season so that those who want to buy Nintendo Switch in the holiday season can get it.
If the report is to be believed then Nintendo Switch is very well on its way to outsell Wii which has shipped over 100 million units in its lifetime.
According to Nintendo, it wants Nintendo Switch to match 100 million units install base of the Wii console saying “The truth is we want to raise the installed base of Nintendo Switch up to the same level as Wii”. Furthermore, Nintendo has predicted that some household will have more than one Switch.
