Nintendo plans to manufacture more Switches this year

As reported by Nikkei, Nintendo plans to manufacture more Switches in 2020 as compared to that of 2019. Nintendo manufactured over 20 million switches in 2019 and they are going to manufacture over 22 million units this year.

Nintendo Switch is nowhere to buy at a suitable price. On the other hand, it is being said that bots are used to buy Switches by big retailers. In order to meet the demand, Nintendo is planning to increase its manufacturing ratio.

There are many reasons why Nintendo Switch is hard to find at most retailers. The release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons is one of them. Nintendo released a life simulation game for the Switch on March 20.

“We expect [suppliers] to respond to increased production, but for the acquisition of some parts, the picture remains uncertain and we cannot predict exactly how many switches can be supplied,” a Nintendo representative told Nikkei. “We will do what we can to meet the request for increased production,” added a representative from a component supplier. “There are indications that acquisitions are being advanced to address disruptions in supply chains,” an industry source also shared.

The Switch received a boost from last month’s release of “Animal Crossing: New Horizons.” The popular title has sold 3 million copies in Japan through its third week, according to the gaming magazine Famitsu.

However, the supply chain for the Switch has expanded to China and Southeast Asia. Malaysia and the Philippines have imposed social restrictions that could frustrate part deliveries.

Some parts suppliers apparently have received orders for April-June that are more than 50% larger than originally planned.

I enjoy playing games, and gaming is a passion of mine. Among my favorite games are Tears of the Kingdom, GTA, and Cyberpunk.
