Nintendo reportedly doubling Switch production after strong early sales


It sums up precisely why Nintendo chose to ramp up the production to make 16 million units instead of the previously decided 8 million in the next fiscal year starting next month.

Nintendo is reportedly planning to produce 16 million units of the Switch starting this April, when the company's fiscal year begins anew. If they follow through on this plan, and the units end up selling well, they will easily top the lifetime sales of the Wii U, which sit at under 14 million units.

The Nintendo Switch appears to be off to an impressive start, with demand high enough for the portable-hybrid console for it to be sold out at most online retailers. But the fact that GameStop issued a press release about a restock - normally a mundane event - certainly says something. This is double than what the company planned. This is unbelievable, especially when compared to the Wii U which, for example, had 13.5 million sales during its entire lifespan which was about 4 years. You know your Switch can let you game on the go, and about giving one half of the controller to the person next to you for some instant multiplayer, but what else?

Speaking to IGN, a representative from Trey Parker and Matt Stone's South Park studio said that the game "won't be coming" to the Nintendo Switch after rumors begin circulating due to a post on the official South Park Twitter account. Their differing approach and back catalogue of brilliant and exclusive games also makes old Nintendo consoles carry a certain nostalgia that others perhaps don't. "Zelda: Breath of the Wild" already helps the console a great deal. People will buy the console in order to play those games.

Nintendo's sales expectations for the Switch's predecessor, the Wii U, were much loftier. Now, while the Nintendo Switch is still a hot topic.

Odyssey will be the first 3D Mario in four years and the focal point of Nintendo's entire first year plans for Switch.
