The demand for Nintendo’s smash-hit Switch console continues to outpace the company’s production, but that will likely change in 2018.
Nintendo is reportedly set to manufacture up to 30 million consoles in the next year, and some analysts even predict it could eventually surpass the Wii.
The report comes via the Wall Street Journal, which has learned that Nintendo is planning to make between 25 million and 30 million Switch systems during its next fiscal year, beginning in April 2018.
This number could even be raised depending on how the system performs this holiday season — with games like Super Mario Odyssey and Splatoon 2 on the market, Nintendo shouldn’t have any trouble moving units.
Nomura Securities analyst Junko Yamamura even predicted the Switch would surpass the Wii in total sales by 2023, though that’s a long way off.
The forecast for Nintendo was quite different just a year ago.
