Nintendo To Increase Switch Production; Planning To Ship 50 Million Units By April 2019

A new report reveals that Nintendo is planning a significant increase in Switch production for 2018. If the Switch sells well enough over the course of the coming holiday season, production could be ramped up even higher; the plan is still developing and relatively flexible.

This graph shows post-release Nintendo Switch sellthrough trends for the North American market.

Inexperienced England side earn credible draw with Germany
Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, Fabian Delph, Jordan Henderson, Dele Alli and Harry Winks have already pulled out of the squad. Here, we rank each of the 49 contenders for a spot by the chances they have of making the final 23 - as things stand.

The Wall Street Journal has managed to learn from different sources that the Japanese company is expecting to produce between 25 and 30 million units in its next fiscal year, which will end on March 2019. The console has also attracted the attention of third-party studios, receiving ports of Doom (out today) and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (out on November 17).

If Nintendo can sell upwards of 47 million Switches by March 2019, the system could potentially surpass the Xbox One in market share despite the rival console having hit the market more than three-and-a-half years before the Switch launched last March.

Hopefully next year it's easier for gamers to buy a Switch. Combined with sales from its launch month in March, that will bring it to a total of almost 17 million units in its 13 months of availability.

If interest persists, it's plausible that the Switch could one day outsell the original Wii, the company's most popular home console to date with more than 100 million units shipped.

Alibaba Singles' Day sales race past $ 10 bn in first hour
Alibaba has championed the shopping holiday and, this year, pulled in $12 billion in just the first two hours. However, there is some doubt about the scale of the Singles' Day sales.

Demand for Nintendo Switch remains high, but supply shortages have proven to be a problem since launch. Some analysts predict the Switch could ship more than 115 million in its lifetime.
