Nintendo Producing 30 Million Switch Units This Fiscal Year, New 4K Model Coming in 2021 – Report
According to Bloomberg, Nintendo will not only increase the production volume of the Switch in the coming year. The more powerful 4K model, which has recently been making the rounds in the form of rumors, is also due to appear in 2021.
According to current reports, Nintendo is said to have decided to restart the production of the Switch by the end of the current fiscal year 2020/2021 (April 1, 2020 – March 31, 2021).
At the beginning of August, Nintendo initially increased production orders to 25 million units in order to be able to meet the increased demand caused by the Corona crisis and games like Animal Crossing: New Horizons. According to a report from Bloomberg, the production volume is to be increased to 30 million units by the end of the fiscal year. As it is said, the manufacturing companies are now working at a capacity of 120 percent.
Already last month it was reported that Nintendo is in fact working on another model of the successful handheld hybrid console. Here we are supposed to be dealing with a kind of Switch Pro that has been equipped with more powerful hardware with which the new Nintendo Switch should be able to display games in 4K resolution.
As stated in the latest report from Bloomberg, the 4K model of the Switch is indeed in the works and is currently slated for a release in 2021. According to Bloomberg, various third-party manufacturers asked by Nintendo to tailor their Switch projects to 4K resolution have confirmed the powerful version of the Switch.
An official statement or even confirmation from Nintendo is still a long time coming. If there is any specific information in this regard, you will of course find out from us immediately.
