Report: Nintendo Increases Switch Production Again

Posted on September 9, 2020 by Paul Thurrott in Games with 4 Comments

Thanks to blockbuster Switch sales, Nintendo is ramping up production of the portable console yet again to meet the additional demand, according to a new report in Bloomberg.

As you may recall, Nintendo reported massive year-over-year gains in profits and revenues in its most recent quarter thanks to the Switch, and the firm increased production August, noting that it expected to sell around 25 million units this year, up from the previous projection of 19 million units.

Well, Nintendo is upping its production again, Bloomberg says, and now it expects to sell 30 million units this year. Switch sales have skyrocketed in part because of the pandemic, and in part because of the unexpected blockbuster success of the title Animal Crossing.
