Nintendo is planning to produce between 25 million and 30 million Nintendo Switch units next fiscal year, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal citing sources "with direct knowledge of the matter". Combined with sales from its launch month in March, that will bring it to a total of almost 17 million units in its 13 months of availability. The above shows an overlay of sell-through figures together with Wii and Wii U data for the first years after release. Although Nintendo has already informed business partners of its decision, the plan is still in an early stage.

The company's also increased its expectations for this fiscal year's sales.

Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima said during the company's recent earnings call that they have increased Switch shipment projections for the fiscal year from 10 million units to 14 million units. Nomura Securities analyst Junko Yamamura, the outlet says, predicts the console will sell "115.8 million units by March 2023".

And while there's no telling whether or not such a pace would be sustainable for Switch in the long run, the hybrid home/portable hardware would eventually surpass Nintendo's most popular home console, the Wii, if it did continue selling at that pace for its lifetime. Over a seven-month period, Nintendo sold 7.63 million systems and plans to sell 9.1 million more by the console's one-year anniversary.
