After the end of the 2018 Game Awards last week, NDGN's President Reggie Fils-Aimé had a lot to say to IGN about the current state of Switch. One of the more interesting facts he mentioned was how half of all Nintendo Switch owners in the United States bought Super Mario Odyssey The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe .
According to Reggie, these games connect to 50 percent of the purchased hardware:
"These three games continue to be linked to hardware of more than 50 percent … Just think about it For anyone who owns a system, More than one of the two bought Zelda, more than one of the two has bought Kart, more than one of the two has bought Odyssey. It has never happened in the US video game story. "
In order to maintain the sales momentum, Nintendo intends to continue to release key franchise next year and add some surprises along the way:
"We have launched many systems, we've seen what works when we drive a system ahead … We've seen where we've lost momentum, and A critical compan nt has a great launch of launches and, as you emphasize, we have a number of key franchises next year … the other element ensures that we also surprise with something that is completely unexpected but brings new consumers into the platform And that's what What Nintendo Labo is all about? And we will continue to run Nintendo Labo. The announcement we made in collaboration with the Institute of Play, and utilizing the STEAM elements in these experiences are all part of the grand plan to continue making the Nintendo Switch a very efficient platform. "
