Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa recently spoke with the Japanese publication Sankei about the success of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and the Switch

In regards to the Switch, Furukawa said again how Nintendo was aiming to shift 20 million Switch consoles at the end of the financial year in March 201
