According to the Wall Street Journal, Nintendo will ramp up the production of the Nintendo Switch. The rumor indicates that the company will produce more than 16 million units this year, more than double compared to the current number.
According to the newspaper, the company will produce more than 16 million Nintendo Switch consoles this year, which more than double compared to the initial production number of 8 million units.
Since the console's launch earlier this month, the Nintendo Switch is still considered hard to obtain because many local retailers are still waiting on shipments to complement their stock.
When compared to Nintendo's previous console, the Nintendo Wii U, it seems that the Nintendo Switch is far more popular than the console ever was because the company only sold 14 million units of that console since its introduction in 2012.
Despite ramping up console production, it seems unlikely that the console will match or exceed the total sales of the original Nintendo Wii because over 100 million units have been sold since its release in 2006.
