According to Nintendo's president, Switch manufacturing might be hazardous next year ...

Following the Switch's decline in sales in the previous quarter, Nintendo's president said the consoles' manufacturing might be unpredictable next year.

Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa said the condition of semiconductor supply might make the development of Switch consoles uncertain next year, despite his assertion that chip manufacturing is improving for the remainder of this fiscal year.

Furukawa said the company's sales projection for the fiscal year through March 2023 was on track to improve in the latter half of this summer. Besides, things are still unclear.

Furukawa did not identify which devices are experiencing a supply shortage when it came to semiconductors, but he assured everyone that all of these would be available in the market. Nintendo will continue to sell three [Switch] models: the Standard model; the Switch Lite with reduced pricing, size, and features; and the OLED model, according to Furukawa.

This follows Nintendo's latest financial results report last week. The Switch console's year-on-year sales are now down by 22.9 percent. In the previous quarter, only 3.43 million units were sold, compared to 4.45 million units in the previous year's Q2. However, Nintendo is expected to sell 21 million units between now and March 2023.
