Nintendo looks to boost Switch output for stay-at-home gamers

Suppliers told to prepare for 10% increase in production

OSAKA/KYOTO -- Nintendo seeks to raise output of the Switch video game device this year in response to a jump in demand from homebound consumers, Nikkei has learned.

The Kyoto-based game developer says it expects to produce about 10% more units of the Switch series in 2020, up from around 20 million last year, according to parts suppliers informed of the plans.
