http://time.com/4705071/nintendo-switch-production/ -- That was last March. Nintendo officially doubled production of the Switch to make, ship and (hopefully) sell not 8M but 16M units by April 1 2018 the end of their fiscal year. We know for a fact the WiiU is out of production and has been since last year and they were sitting on inventory shipping it out through the end of 2016. There are a little over 13.5M units of the WiiU created and sold.
All Nintendo has to do in 12months and couple weeks time has to do is meet their production projection, and the WiiU will be bypassed by a few million. Nintendo is still wishing, but still given the pacing of the Switch has outmatched the pacing of the Wii in the same time frame, they may be on to something.
