News hardware Nintendo Switch: Big ambitions in terms of production?
With more than 80 million consoles sold worldwide, the Nintendo Switch is a huge hit for Nintendo, which is enjoying excellent years after the failure of the WiiU. However, Nintendo does not intend to stop there, and seems to have great ambitions.
Takashi Mochizuki, reporter for Bloomberg, highlights a new report by Nikkei, also taken up by VGC. Recently Nintendo announced fear shortage semiconductors that currently affect many industries, while claiming have enough stock to see it coming. This fear does not seem to be reflected in the planning of the firm, which would have indicated to its various partners its intention to produce and therefore distribute 30 million Switches by March 31, 2022.
Nintendo has been asked about this, but did not wish to speak. This gigantic ambition, which would take the console beyond the 110 million distributed consoles, could end up run into shortage problems in progress, and at the Nvidia’s desire to stop producing Tegra X1 chips fitted to the console. The question of the so-called “Pro” Switch remains unanswered, but Nikkei keeps pushing the idea that she might be coming soon.
