Nintendo Doubling Switch Production to Meet Demand

Nintendo has decided at double the production of their new console, the Nintendo Switch, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal.

Their report says that during the upcoming fiscal year Nintendo plans to manufacture 16 million units  which is double their initial 8 million projection from earlier this year.

According to a source close to The Wall Street Journal Nintendo expects to sell upwards of 10 million Switches during the console’s first year on the market.

This decision is obviously fueled by the tremendous success of the system which sold 1.5 million units during its first week on the market.
