Nintendo is planning to manufacture 9.5-10 million units of its upcoming Nintendo NX console per year, according to a report by DigiTimes.

A trial production run of the new console has already taken place, industry sources tell the website, with Foxconn said to be the lead manufacturer. Misumi Electronics, which appears to specialise in camera modules, is said to be involved in the console's production, too.

The Nintendo NX has widely been reported to be a hybrid handheld/home console device, with a release scheduled for March 2017. Earlier this week, Pokemon Company CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara revealed that the NX is "trying the change the concept of what it means to be a home console device or a handheld device".

An official reveal is rumoured for October.
