Nintendo doubles the production of Switch Console
According to a report of the Wall Street Journal (which in turn cites people very close to the house of Kyoto), Nintendo would have given orders to increase the production of Switch console for the next fiscal year, which begins April 1.
If we had the feeling of a successful launch for the Nintendo Switch, we are not going to miss this: at Nintendo, the atmosphere is euphoric, and the firm has just decided to double the production of Switch console on the next Fiscal year that will close on March 31, 2018, as reported by the Wall Street Journal.
The manufacturers that deals with assembling the console would in fact have received the request to double the production, rising from 8 million units expected to 16 million. During the next fiscal year (ie; in the period from April 1, 2017 to 31 March 2018), the company expects to sell more than 10 million consoles of Nintendo Switch.
The decision was taken by President Tatsumi Kimishima, who plans to distribute two million consoles per month worldwide, although according to sources of the WSJ this number would be actually higher, amounting to about 2.5 million units spread over monthly basis.
Nintendo will discuss plans for the future at the next meeting with shareholders, scheduled for April 27, a spokesman for the Japanese company refused to comment as reported by the Wall Street Journal.
