Although the Nintendo Switch was a success from its initial launch, it’s been able to maintain and build on momentum. While the Wii U sold well at launch and stagnated, the Switch is continually selling more and more. One NPD analyst actually claims the hybrid console is on pace to sell 20 percent more than the Wii in its first ten months.

Switch is on pace to exceed Wii by 20%+ over the first 10 months of sales. The thing is though, the Switch, from a demographic and usage basis, is nothing like the Wii. It’s much more a core gamer console than anything Nintendo has done since maybe NGC? …and because it’s a hybrid, multi console ownership per household could be a thing, making upside potential bigger than the Wii”

He also mentioned that, if Pokemon comes out next year, Switch will likely take 40+ share of the hardware market.
