Nintendo reportedly doubling Switch production after strong early sales

The Nintendo Switch launch has been a monumental success by all accounts.

This week, North American Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo Switch owners in search of blasts from the past can treat themselves to a puzzle game or fighter. This is the main reason why Nintendo has recently chose to double the production for their much appreciated console. As per SuperData, the company has already sold 1.5 million units. The Switch is looking good so far both critically and commercially, so the reception can give an optimistic forecast for the console.

The four new games for the Nintendo Switch console are; "The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+", "Human Resource Machine", "Little Inferno", and "World of Goo".

The report was published by The Wall Street Journal that suggested amendments to the production plans of Nintendo Switch for the fiscal year which ends in March, next year.

South Park The Fractured But Whole - which has been delayed multiple times on Xbox One and PS4 - looked to be heading to the Nintendo Switch this year.

If you're dying to get your hands on a Switch, your best bet is still using a site like Now in Stock and watching. It's a mobile console first with removable small controllers. That is double its previous order of 8 million consoles.

The small controllers that are detachable from the mobile unit also slide onto a home controller. This is exactly why game makers need to begin working on new titles as soon as possible. It seems that, as the Switch has caught on with consumers and sold out all over the place-likely thanks in no small part to Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild-the gaming giant is boosting Switch production to previously unanticipated levels.

"South Park: The Fractured but Whole" was originally slated for a March 2017 release, but Ubisoft has since announced the indefinite delay of the game earlier this year. Still it remains to be seen how Switch performs once the initial hype dies down.

"The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+" is the highlight game among this week's newest games for Nintendo Switch console. Two stylish versions of the system will be released: a version with a set of gray Joy-Con, and a version with one neon blue and one neon red Joy-Con.
