We reported earlier today how Wall Street believes the Switch is on a decline. We all know well that all good things must come to an end. That is just a fact of life but the Switch has only been out a little over a year now and still has the majority of its “life” ahead of it. In light of that you would think it would be a little much to say that it was declining at the moment; as if Nintendo would play “all of it’s cards” in the first year and a half.
Some good news out of Japan, however, is saying that the Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association (CESA) in Japan has stated that the Switch has fairly much single-handedly increased the console market sales 386,700,000,000 yen (USD3.5 billion). This is a 22.7% increase year over year where the market in Japan has been in decline for 11 years now.
If this doesn’t speak to the success of the Switch then we honestly don’t know what does. Let us continue to hope that the Switch can keep up this trend and continue to impact the gaming world for years to come!
