Nintendo To Increase Production Of Nintendo Switch

Last fall, the President of Nintendo, Mr. Kimishima, had mentioned that the plan was to launch the Nintendo Switch in March of 2017 with 2 million units shipped worldwide by the end of the month. He added that they could tweak those numbers higher if demand called for it.

That appears to be the case, with many retailers in North America already sold out of launch day pre-orders. Takashi Mochizuki of the Wall Street Journal tweeted:



Of course we don’t have some much-needed details. When will production increase, and by how much? Will there be additional units ready for launch, or will there be out of stock situations until April? Hopefully some of these questions will be answered over the next few days.

Although this shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, Takashi also tweeted that Nintendo has confirmed that the Switch comes with no software included. Not even trials or demos.
