Nintendo To Increase Switch Production; Planning To Ship 50 Million Units By April 2019
Wall Street Journal points out some industry professionals think the Switch could surpass the Wii's sales, which sold over 101 million units and is the company's best-selling product.
The Switch has been an unequivocal success for Nintendo, but if there's one area where the company has faltered, it has been producing enough supply to meet the voracious demand. Currently, Nintendo's projections for the fiscal year are to sell 14 million Switch units, though the increased production of the system for next fiscal year could change depending on how well the system performs during the upcoming holiday season (and the Switch's first holiday season). Although Nintendo has already informed business partners of its decision, the plan is still in an early stage.
From the day the Switch launched on March 3rd up through the end of September, Nintendo sold 7.6 million Switch consoles worldwide. Although Microsoft has long since stopped reporting Xbox One sales numbers, the company is believed to have sold somewhere around 30 million units to date.
Nintendo had already said that it would be increasing expected shipments in this fiscal year as well during its last financial briefing on October 31. However, new reports show that Nintendo has plans to increase production of Switch consoles this holiday season and next year. Nomura Securities analyst Junko Yamamura, the outlet says, predicts the console will sell "115.8 million units by March 2023".
