Nintendo Plans To Double Production Of The Switch

by Javy Gwaltney on Mar 17, 2017 at 06:18 AM

According to The Wall Street Journal, Nintendo will be increasing the production of its new console for the next financial year, producing 16 million units. This comes on the heels of the company's stock price shooting up 10% as well as the nearly unanimous critical acclaim for The Switch's launch title, The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild.

It's worth noting that The Switch also broke the 48-hour sales record for a console debut from Nintendo.

Our Take
The Switch continues to perform well but Nintendo still has to play the long game. It'll be interesting to see how the company's software plans work for them in the coming months.
