Oriental Land Co., operator of Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, is planning to spend roughly 300 billion yen ($2.7 billion) to expand the two theme parks, sources with knowledge of the matter said Wednesday.
The company plans to start constructing the new areas -- a 30 percent expansion of the existing parks -- by 2025, one of the sources said.
By all accounts, the Nintendo Switch is doing pretty well for itself. Nintendo announced that the console managed to sell 7.63 million units worldwide since its release earlier this year, and that they expect the console to go on and beat the Wii U's lifetime sales within a year. In fact the company is so optimistic that come 2018, they are planning on ramping up production.
This is according to a report from The Wall Street Journal in which they claim that Nintendo is planning on ramping up production significantly for 2018. The report claims that Nintendo will be producing as many as 25-30 million Switch consoles for 2018, and that those numbers go higher depending on this year's holiday sales.

Lexus will introduce plug-in hybrids and a hydrogen fuel cell LS by 2020, according to a Fleetworld interview with Lexus UK managing director Ewan Shepard:
"We will bring plug-in hybrids through in time and I think that's where the industry will go. We've already got our hybrids, so we're safe in the interim, but some of our models will have a plug-in – although we can't confirm specifically which ones yet.
McLaren has just about reached the point of desperation by now. One of the most victorious teams in F1 history, it hasn't won a race or even landed on the podium once in the past three seasons. And all signs point to it being Honda's fault.
That's why the team has been rumored to be considering other options for next season, and this latest report has really caught our attention.
