Likewise, gamers will soon lose the ability to transfer their previously purchased games from the Wii to the Wii U. That said, with the company's plans to make the technically superior and massively successful Switch more readily available, gamers have little reason not to finally make the upgrade. The future for the Switch is looking equally as bright, with games like Metroid Prime 4, a new Pokemon title, and a presumed Smash Bros sequel in the console's future - which is exactly why Nintendo is poised to massively ramp up production for its portable console.

A source speaking to the Wall Street Journal has said that production of the Switch might be as high as 25 to 30 million units in their next financial year (April 2018 to March 2019).

The new 25-30 million target is very ambitious because the only other table-top console that sold so much in a single year was the Wii, which recorded 25.94 million units in its second year.

. If Nintendo plans on producing almost 30 million Switches, the company clearly has high expectation for their newest system. It is getting both strong first party and third party support. Depending on how well it sells during the holiday season, Nintendo could increase that figure further, according to the WSJ.

From the day the Switch launched on March 3rd up through the end of September, Nintendo sold 7.6 million Switch consoles worldwide.

The Nintendo Switch is off to a good start already.

He also appeared in numerous sitcoms, including The Betty White Show , Valerie's Family: The Hogans, and One Day at a Time . He got the Mel Brooks classic in 1974 and then a spot in Roman Polanski's noir classic Chinatown that same year.

The risk factor comes from the demand that Nintendo has projected. Here's to hoping that alongside the tens of millions of Switches come a few Classics, too.
