Nintendo Switch has become the perfect console to fight the Coronavirus from home And this is something that has been noticed in stores, which increasingly have less stock of the hybrid console and have already seen its price affected by speculation. The increase in sales was not the only culprit, COVID-19 has also affected the supply chain when it comes to manufacturing the hardware.
Luckily, a report report from Nikkei Asian Review has revealed that Nintendo has prepared to fight the pandemic increasing the production of Nintendo Switch up to 10% compared to last year. Thus, if around 20 million consoles were produced in 2019, in 2020 approximately 22 million will be manufactured.
Given that the beginning of the year has been slow in the manufacturing chain, everything points to the big boost will come over the next few weeks
At the end of last year, Nintendo Switch was harvesting some 52 million consoles sold, so the big N could close 2020 with a total of 75 million consoles sold. In this way, in a competition that will enter PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, the hybrid could aim to reach the milestone of 100 million.
