Nintendo to cut Switch game console target 20% on chip shortage: Nikkei – The Straits Times

TOKYO (BLOOMBERG) – Nintendo plans to produce about 24 million Switch consoles for the current fiscal year, about 20 per cent less than originally planned, the Nikkei reported.

While demand for the new console is strong, the Kyoto-based company has struggled to get enough semiconductors to make the machines, the newspaper said. The company had originally planned to make about 30 million consoles, a record high, it said.

The new Switch got off to a rocky start last month during its debut, suggesting supply constraints were hampering the company’s biggest product launch in years, Bloomberg News reported.
