With the console wars escalated once again due to the segmented launch of Nintendo Switch – Nintendo upon launch have sent out a clear message. They are back and they are not going down easily this year. Switch is a console that targets both audiences, sit home players and handheld lovers.
Many analysts are positive about Nintendo’s prospects after seeing the brisk in sales for the Switch which was released somewhere in March. Profit submitted right now 65 billion yen which in universal language is $576 million. That has marked a 120% increase sales over the previous console release. Nintendo sold 2.74 million unites, exceeding its target of 2 million. The company now aims to move to 10 million units this fiscal year.
However an issue with the Switch, as with every single new release, is the absence of games accessible from the very first moment, with perhaps Breath of the Wild being the sole exception along with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
Maybe that’s the reason why the higher ups at Nintendo are anxious for third party developers to “rush” the development process of a major release . The report comes courtesy of Nikkei Asia , and hence it is likely that the Devs are Japanese.
Not a few analysts have the impression that Nintendo has learned from its mistakes with its previous console, the Wii U. The company has sought to make it easier to create games for the Switch by expanding the scope of development tools. It is also pushing developers to expand the Switch game lineup quickly. An executive at one software company said Nintendo asked it to introduce major releases “as early as possible.”
So it will be interesting to see what new titles will be coming our way in the near future for the Nintendo Switch, and whether any of them do go on to become system sellers in the future.
