Nintendo Switch production ups to 2 million units per month
Nintendo has raised the Switch production to 2 million units a month
The Switch has been very successful, but many fans can’t get it because of the Switch shortage. Many experts were saying Nintendo will lose a lot of sells in the holidays because of the Switch shortage, but it seems like the Switch shortage is over.
According to DigiTimes Nintendo has raised Switch production to 2 million units per month. DigiTimes sources believe the Switch production will rise further because the Switch is going to get released in China at early 2018. Nintendo expects to sell 20 million units by the end of 2017.
According to the Nintendo quarterly earnings, The Switch sold 4.7 million units by the end of June 2017, and Zelda Breath of the Wild is Switch’s best selling game. Zelda Breath of the Wild sold 3.61 million copies globally.
The Switch has sold a lot more units than the Wii U. Wii U was Nintendo’s worst selling console. Throughout its lifetime, Wii U only sold 13.5 million units. The Wii U launched on November 18, 2012, and production ended on December 31, 2016. So in 4 years Wii U only sold 13.5 million units. Wii U sold 96.5 million software, and Wii U’s most popular game was Mario Kart 8 with 7.5 million units sold. Mario Kart 8 was released on May 29, 2014. If Nintendo fixes the shortage, and release the Switch in China, they will reach their 20 million units goal.
Nintendo has repeatedly said they will make more Nintendo Switchs, but that hasn’t happened yet. It seems like Nintendo is fixing that problem, but the Switch shortage is not done yet. Right now the Gray Nintendo Switch is available on Amazon for $299.99, but the Neon Blue and Red version is $354.98. The Neon color is hard to find, but the Gray version is available in most place.
