Nintendo Hoping to Sell Over 20 Million Nintendo Switch Units

Things are looking pretty good for Nintendo

Nintendo Switch

Since its initial launch earlier this year, the Nintendo Switch has been selling incredibly well. And, according to an announcement made by Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima (originally reported by GameTransfers), the company has some rather lofty goals regarding the future sales of their latest portable/console hybrid.

During an interview with Kyoto Shimbun, Kimishima stated that Nintendo would like to see over 20 million units sold in total. He also stated that he would like to see over 14 million units sold by the end of the current fiscal year (March 31, 2018). With a little over three months to go before the end of the current fiscal year , and over 10 million units already sold, Nintendo’s  goals could very well be achieved.

Kimishima also commented on DLC, stating that Nintendo plans on utilizing DLC in order to allow players to enjoy their favorite titles for a longer period of time.

Whether you’re a fan of Nintendo or not, there’s no denying that the Switch has been a pretty big success. Are you happy to see the Switch doing so well?

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
