During last night’s financial report, Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima announced that the company plans to ramp up Switch production thanks to strong global pre-orders. Initially, Nintendo announced that 2 million units would be shipped worldwide during the first 30 days of the Switch’s lifespan; however, pre-orders went incredibly fast in North America, and even in Japan.
Nintendo chief Kimishima said the firm plans to increase production of Switch, pre-oder status so far good.

There is no official word as to when this production increase will begin or if pre-order will re-open prior to the console’s March 3rd launch day, but hopefully this is a possibility. Stay tuned to Nintendo Wire for more details as we get them.
