The Nintendo Switch will be turning 6 years old this year, so speculation on the next video gaming console from Nintendo has only been increasing from fans. However, a report from Bloomberg may suggest that Nintendo isn’t quite ready to move on from the Switch just yet.
According to Bloomberg via “people familiar with the matter”, Nintendo is planning to increase production of the Switch beginning in the coming fiscal year that starts in spring. In fact, Nintendo has apparently already told this to suppliers and assembly partners.
As for why, there’s a couple of reasons. Nintendo is convinced that this is possible to do, now that the supply issues and shortages are starting to ease. They also feel that demand for the console is still strong, and they expect the demand to stay that way for at least another year. Nevertheless, the company is prepared to revise its plans in the event that demand unexpectedly wanes, which is likely the reason why Nintendo didn’t give a specific target number of Switch units to produce to their suppliers and assembly partners.
