Report: Nintendo expects to sell 20M Switch consoles in the next fiscal year

Report: Nintendo expects to sell 20M Switch consoles in the next fiscal year

December 29, 2017 | By Chris Kerr

Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima believes the company can sell over 20 million Switch consoles during the next financial year. 

Kimishima laid out his expectations during an interview with Japanese paper the Kyoto Shimbun (translated by Wccftech), and explained Nintendo will attempt to maintain the Switch's momentum by releasing new software that "enables new ways of playing." 

The hybrid system has already sold over 10 million units since launching on March 3, and Nintendo expects to see that figure top 14 million before the end of this fiscal year on March 31, 2018. 

All of the above suggests Nintendo is confident of seeing the Switch break the 30 million sales mark in its first two years on shelves. 

Time will tell whether that prediction proves to be accurate, but as it stands the nimble console is proving to be a hot commodity.
