Contrary to what any of us might believe or hope for, it seems like Nintendo isn’t winding down the current model/s of Nintendo Switch any time soon. In fact, if a report from Bloomberg is to be believed it’s only going harder on the ageing console.
The outlet’s Takashi Mochizuki and Debby Wu report that Nintendo has informed suppliers and manufacturing partners that it plans on increasing output and producing more Switches in its fiscal year starting April ’23.

Despite supply shortages, the Nintendo Switch was the best-selling console overall in 2022 (by units sold, the PS5 had it beat in dollar value) so it’s not all that surprising to see Nintendo hoping to push things even further in the next 12 months but it’s sure to face a tough battle with the hardware, which launched in March 2017, struggling to keep up with modern graphical/performance expectations.
