This comes from Wall Street Journal, who talked with insiders on the know. According to them, Nintendo will be focusing on manufacturing 25-30 million Switch units in the next fiscal year, which starts from April 2018. So far the hybrid system has proved to be immensely successful, hence it’s only natural for them to go this route

However, since things have yet not been finalized, the Japanese gaming giant may end up producing even more hardware than what they aim for. Nintendo president, Tatsumi Kimishima believes that the Switch will continue it’s sales momentum even after the holiday season so they’re encouraging manufacturers to establish new work lines to keep up with the flow.

Another interesting fact is that Nomura Securities’ analyst Junko Yamamura predicts that Switch will end up selling 115.8 million units total by March 2023. That’s surpassing even the Wii’s 101 million units, which was a massively popular system last gen.

What do you make of this? Do you think Switch will be able to at least catch up to the PlayStation 4 (the highest selling system so far this gen), if not surpass the Wii? Considering the amount of support the Switch is getting from developers as well as positive reception from fans, it doesn’t seem that far fetched.
