Nintendo will significantly increase its production of Switch consoles this year to meet the demand it's expecting this holiday season.
The Japanese company is reportedly aiming to produce 18 million consoles between now and March 2018, according to the Financial Times. That's up from the original plan of 16 million.
The moment I decided I want the Nintendo Switch, they're all sold out everywhere...why oh why. I just wanna game again after so long. 😭😭🎮— Julia Rao (@juliarao25) May 27, 2017
Nintendo lovers have had a hard time finding units before they sell out.
The gaming console sold extremely well during its first week. About 600,000 units were sold in the first 8 days of launching in the Americas.
The Nintendo Switch has been particularly difficult to find before it sells out in a lot of stores across the U.S.
The company is apparently boosting production to avoid "customer tantrums" this holiday season.
Nintendo denies that it's boosting production, and it's standing by it's initial target of 10 million units.
