In the last quarter of 2018, Nintendo's results were successful for the Switch console. They sold 9,42 million units, 30% more more than in the same period of the previous year.
If one of these data is maintained, Nintendo could not be happier, but Japan companies were very optimistic with the sales forecasts for 2018. In three quarters, 14.48 million units were reduced and expectations fell: 20 million consoles were expected to sell, but now It has reduced 17 million.
The game catalog is a challenge to expand and improve
That figure already It seems tough Taking into account the first two quarters of 2018 in 2018. Merry Christmas sales have undoubtedly been outstanding in the market for almost 10 million switches, but it has not been successful in achieving this goal. It was marked nine months ago.
It would take four million consumables for sales over the next three months, something is not quite reasonable We note that in the second quarter of 2018 they sell 2.92 million units of Nintendo Switch.
However, here is a key factor, and that's it The Nintendo Switch catalog has stopped somewhat. This year, the new "New Super Mario Bros. Deluxe", "New Yoshi's Crafted World" (March 2019) and the "New Super Mario Bros. Deluxe" of the "Fire Emblem: Three Houses" show will appear in "March 2019" .
Other advanced advances They're having problems: A few days ago, Nintendo & # 39; Metroid Prime 4 & # 39; With the help of Retro Studios, the development was restarted: the initial development was not enough quality, and the indie catalog could be encouraged. Experimental developments such as "Shin Megami Tensei V" or "Bayonetta 3".
The switchover is still fantastic because Nintendo has reduced these expectations: since its launch There were 32.27 million consoles sold, Overcoming GameCube and Wii U and just 660,000 units of successful Nintendo 64.
The sale of games in the current catalog has also made an excellent job in the last quarter. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate & # 39; He sold 12.08 million units and "Pokemon: Let's Go & # 39;" It sells 10 million, which shows that titles continue to grow among users.
