Nintendo Switch Production to Double

Elbert EdwardsMar 18, 2017

GameStop has announced they will be getting a restock of the Nintendo Switch starting next week for anyone who didn't get their hands on the console at launch.

Nintendo is reportedly set to double its planned production of Nintendo Switch consoles over the next financial year, aiming to manufacturer 16 million units between April and March 2018.

Even with Nintendo's plan to ship 2 million Nintendo Switch units in March, the console is still hard to find at retailers, seemingly sold out nearly everywhere.

Two weeks after the new console was launched, new games are added every week to give gamers more gaming experience with the Switch.

"South Park: The Fractured but Whole" will be released on PS4, Xbox One and PC, but will it really come to Nintendo Switch? This is the main reason why Nintendo has recently made a decision to double the production for their much appreciated console. If supply could keep up with demand, it would likely already have passed 2 million units sold.

Nintendo has yet to release sales figures for Switch, but it's known to have shifted 80,000 units during its launch weekend in the UK.

The flagship Switch game of the company, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild simply has inside the box an illustration of a protagonist link climbing a cliff.

PS4 sold more than 13.5 million units in its first year. Several more game titles are lined up for the new console, so the plan could be in preparation to meet future high demands.

Will you be picking up any of the new Switch releases?

Speculation began when the official South Park Twitter page posted a tweet that mentioned the Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo Switch is driven by Nvidia Tegra X1, the same chip used by the company to the line of Shield TV.

According to, they have contacted a number of Toys R Us stores across the United Kingdom and they have asked about the Nintendo Switch stocks.
