Analyst: Nintendo Switch Will Sell 40 Million Units in Four Years

Deleted Tweet Reveals Elusive Nintendo Switch UI

"J$3 ust the frequency with which I get called by old high school buddies that I haven't heard from in 30 years who are asking me how to get their hands on Nintendo Switch", he says.

Consoles nearly never launch with a robust slate of games on day one, and the Switch is no different. The game will be released on the Nintendo Switch this year, and we can probably expect it to be delayed. And at their event held two weeks ago, Nintendo asserted that there were 80 games in the works for the Switch- but unfortunately, they failed to actually show proof of that support.

It's always a little daunting when a new console comes out, but in the case of the Switch there have been quite a few mixed and muddled messages about the prices and peripherals. We've also been told what the last first-party Wii U game release will be, and that too should come as no surprise. All of that plays into the perspective that Nintendo wants Wii U owners to upgrade to Switch, and that it is a console with the home in mind. However, the allocated stock for Nintendo Switch pre order per vendor/ seller is only limited.

Australian consumer electronics retailers including the likes of JB HI Fi and EB Games could have a long-term victor on their hands as opposed to an instant hit, with analysts predicting Nintendo's new Switch gaming console will sell 40 million between launch and 2020. According to a recently released image from a Zelda fan site, Breath Of The Wild's map is about to take Skyrim's lunch money. This would be very good news for Nintendo if this number is true. Söderlund then adds that if the Nintendo console sells well, EA would be prepared to release more games on the platform.

As early as August 2016, Nintendo executives were clearly hoping to distance their latest creation from the mistakes of its less-than-successful predecessor.

The quality of the experience and the Switch's broader user interface as it relates to online play and other features remain unknown, and there are reasons for a cautious outlook even as the shift to a paid service seems to be a move in the right direction. The official Nintendo Switch release date will be on March 3, 2017 in US, UK, Australia and many other countries. EA too will look to release the ever popular Federation Internationale de Football Association series on the Switch in the future.
