Though demand for the Switch is still strong, Nintendo is reportedly preparing for a downturn in hardware sales.

According to Nikkei Asia, the Japanese video game giant expects to sell “only about 20 million Switch gaming consoles” in the current fiscal year, down 10% from fiscal 2021. Nikkei goes on to detail how it has learned that “semiconductor shortages and disruptions in logistics networks” are contributing.

That number would be a 30% decline from fiscal 2020, when Switch sales hit 28.83 million units over the same period. In fiscal 2021, Switch sales were estimated at around 23 million units (down 20%).

To counteract this, Nintendo apparently wants to “sell more” switch software in the current financial year. So far the 2022 calendar includes games like Mario Strikers: Battle League, Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, Xenoblade Chronicles 3, turn 3 and Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
