Nintendo Looking to Boost Switch Production

"Sustained demand" for the console is to be expected for at least another year.

The Nintendo Switch is still selling like there's no tomorrow and it seems Nintendo won't be slowing down production any time soon.

According to a new report from Bloomberg, Nintendo actually plans to "increase production" of the hybrid machine in its sixth year after shifting roughly 21 million systems in the previous years. Although it lowered its sales forecast to 19 million last November, the company is now apparently "convinced" it can manufacture more units.

As of current, no target number has been revealed and Nintendo will adjust its production accordingly, depending on the demand for the system. Currently, Nintendo's plans suggest there'll be "sustained demand for at least another year". A Nintendo spokesperson declined to comment on this latest report.

As of 30th September 2022, the Switch has now shifted more than 114 million units worldwide. It's gearing up for another big year with titles like Pikmin 4 and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. A set of leaked images of a Zelda-themed OLED model surfaced online last December and quickly became the talk of the town since.
