The Nintendo Switch production has been doubled to meet the demand of the newly released console.
Nintendo originally planned to have 8 million consoles manufactured by the end of March 2018. This number has doubled to at least 16 million.
The official Nintendo Switch sales figures have not yet been released but Nintendo stated that this is the fastest selling Nintendo Console ever. Around 1.5 million Switch consoles were sold during its first week of release. This type of demand means that the switch itself and the game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild have run out of stock in most stores. The Switch Pro Controller is also nearly impossible to find right now.
Nintendo is hoping they will be able to meet the demand for the Nintendo Switch throughout the year. especially with their new games such as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Arms, and Splatoon 2 on the way!
