Nintendo plans to double Switch production.

Reports from The Wall Street Journal, Nintendo’s initial plan was to produce 8 million Switch units. However, Nintendo is doubling that number to 16 million to keep up with the demand for the system.

Nintendo believes it can sell 10 million units in the financial year starting April 1st. If that does happen, Switch will outsell Wii U’s lifetime sales in just a year (13.5 million).

Nintendo aims to sell 2 million Switch units by the end of March, but we have yet to see the official sales figures.
