Nintendo increases Switch production to battle stock shortage

A Nintendo representative has stated that the Kyoto-based company has ordered an increase in production for their Switch console to help counteract the current global stock shortage. With many staying indoors at the moment, buying a new Switch is difficult with some online stores not being able to offer a replenishment date.

“We hope [suppliers] will be responsive to the production increase, but for procurement of some parts, the outlook remains uncertain, and we can’t forecast exactly how many Switches can be supplied,” a Nintendo representative told Nikkei.

But according to part suppliers who are privy to Nintendo’s plans, there will be a 10% increase meaning that the originally projected manufactured console number jumps up to a total of 22 million units in the April – June quarter. This will hopefully mean that consumers will find it a little easier to purchase one.
