Nintendo Switch Plans To Surpass Wii's 100 Million Sales


“We are aiming to continue this momentum and increase the cumulative sales volume to overtake that of Wii,” Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa said during the company’s recent financial results briefing.


In November 2019, Furukawa said that Switch Lite was drawing a larger percentage of female first-time buyers than the original model did before the release of the handheld device, In January 2020, he added that games like Ring Fit Adventure were expanding Nintendo’s audience.


Furukawa noted that the company’s research revealed that roughly 20% of recent Switch sales in key markets were due to demand for different systems within the same household.


Furukawa has clarified that despite rumors, there was no new model planned for release aside from the Super Mario and Monster Hunter edition consoles that will launch in February and March respectively.


“With this release schedule for new hardware and Nintendo Switch having just marked its highest sales in its fourth year on the market, we do not have plans to announce a new model,” he added.


Now, he's chosen the less stressful life of freelance writing at home with his dog, where he can focus on his pop culture passions like film, television, games and sports.
