2023 Switch production

According to a Bloomberg report, Nintendo intends to increase Switch production for the coming fiscal year. The publication cites “people familiar with the matter.”

Bloomberg mentions that during the year ending March, Nintendo shipped about 21 million Switch units. Although the company lowered its latest sales forecast to 19 million units in November due to component shortages, it now believes it can produce more consoles. Additionally, demand is apparently still strong.
