Last year, about 20% of Switch console sales have been sold to families that already own the product


As the Switch doubles to become home with Handheld game consoles-especially now with the portable-only Switch Lite-it is easy to understand why multiple people in the same family would want their own system. There are multiple Switches in the house to provide a better multiplayer gaming experience and allow everyone to play games at the same time instead of taking turns.

Of course, it is impossible to provide multiple game consoles for everyone, but even if the Switch retail price is $299.99 (or the Lite price is $199.99), Nintendo also revealed that 20% of game console sales last year were those that had already bought consoles People snapped up. There is a switch in the house.

This news comes from the most recent Investor Q&A Shuntaro Furukawa, president of the company, said of the various user groups who have the Switch system:

“In the last fiscal year, household demand for multiple systems accounted for approximately 20% of Nintendo Switch series system sales. Looking ahead, we expect that even if hardware sales increase, each household’s demand for multiple systems will increase.”

In the same response, Furukawa explained that “Sales growth in Asia continues,” Nintendo believes that “there is still enough room for new demand in Europe and the United States.” To this end, Nintendo must “completely convey the appeal of current titles and future titles.”

The Q+A conference also talked about Nintendo’s increasing R&D expenditures, its efforts to align with hardware requirements, and the fact that “many” new games will be moving in this direction this year.
