Switch pitch

Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima has revealed that there are plans to increase production of the Switch following encouraging levels of demand in terms of pre-orders.

The company has already stated that two million Switch consoles will be available at launch. Pre-orders have been robust; in Japan, the demand for the machine was so intense that it crashed Nintendo's online store. Elsewhere in the world, retailers have confirmed that their pre-order allocation has already been snapped up.

This certainly bodes well for the commercial fortunes of the system, and hopefully this positive momentum will encourage more people to invest, which will in turn attract more developers to the platform.

Have you already got a pre-order, and if not, will you be keeping an eye out for any additional stock availability before launch? Let us know by posting your comment below.
