Digitimes Claims That Nintendo Expects To Ship 20 Million Switch Units In First Year

Digitimes, which isn’t always the most reliable source, are reporting that Nintendo is expecting to ship twenty million Nintendo Switch consoles during its first year on sale. The news was obtained by the publication from a Taiwan-based supply chain maker. The same site says that Nintendo president Kimishima Tatsumi has said he expects Nintendo Switch overall sales to hit 110 million units.



  1. The Switch will need a ton of good quality games to sell that well and so far I don’t see many top 3rd party games coming to it. Hope we get positive news soon though.

    1. Well it’ll have all of Nintendo’s games on it plus the third parties that always supported handhelds.

      It’ll do fine. Many times better than Wii U at least.

    2. If after E3 we don’t have many 3rd party games announced, then I will start to worry. Surprises are not only good to Nintendo, but to the 3rd party developers as well, it might increase the hype for their titles if they announce it big.

      1. It could happen, just not now. The Super Slim came out 3 years after the Slim model and served the purpose of allowing Sony to discontinue all previous iterations. They’re not gonna release a new slim model a year after they released two new models.

    1. Lol yea there’s no way this is valid with the other claims of doubling production to 16 million. Even if it was they would need some really good games to be shown at E3 to make this happen. I didn’t click on the source but yea Sony is definitely not releasing another console until ps5

    2. I’m sorry, but why are still reading from Digital when they aren’t creditable? Dudes are idiots and suck Sony and Microsoft off to death.

  2. No at least not with everyhing I know about the systems line up for this year right now. Maybe if they have many suprises left like Twilight Princess HD, Majoras Mask HD, Smash 4.5, Pikmin 4, Monster Hunter Switch, Pokemon for Switch, Mario Maker port, the new Mario Odyssey game recieves 10/10 hype as well and they are able to release Xenoblade Chronicles 2 this year,

    But…that… is not going to happen.

    1. All they would really need is Pokémon and for Mario Odyssey to get really great reception for this year.

  3. Nintendo needs to make this console last at least 6 years, eventually with ‘pocket’ versions and the likes. They need a long time to cement trust from consumers and third parties after the failing Wii U that everyone should forget about.
    No more failures from Nintendo, and third parties will jump on its next console from the start.
    ‘It prints money’, that must be in the head of all people. 6 years.

      1. They were good but not memorable, GC had definitely better games, Wii too. It was a great commercial failure, something to forget for the next 10 years.
