Nintendo Switch vs. Nintendo 64

Posted March 19, 2017

In response to this, Nintendo will be doubling production from next month onwards in an effort to catch up with strong demand.

Citing sources who were briefed by Nintendo's plans, the Wall Street Journal reports that the company is intending to increase its production numbers for the Switch console in the financial year starting this April through March 2018.

Fortunately, there are a couple of clues that have been left for gamers to still have hope that cloud saves will soon be coming to the Nintendo Switch. Approximately 1.5 million Switches have sold already, with half a million selling in the United States alone. Once we see how that time period shapes up, we'll have a solid idea of whether the Switch will truly turn things around for Nintendo in the home console arena-even if it is half portable. If demand for the Switch dips after the initial launch excitement, Nintendo will be stuck storing a lot of hard-to-sell hardware that it paid a premium to produce as quickly as possible.

The correct account was still saved in the Nintendo Switch, but none of the saves. The original Wii, meanwhile, shipped roughly 17 million units in its first full calendar year on the shelves (following a holiday-season launch), amid massive long-term retail shortages and on the way to selling over 100 million units over its lifespan. Being able to download an update that restored the save data in Patsuann's Nintendo Switch goes against past statement that the save data of games is stored only in the system memory of the hybrid console, not in a microSD card or on the cloud. They recommend that you call your local GameStops for availability information.
