Holiday Season is Critically Important for Nintendo Sales, Says Reggie Fils-Aime

Nintendo Switch sales are increasing each time we hear about them. Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime has now revealed that they are expecting a huge rise in sales and revenue because of the holiday season.

Nintendo aims to reach the goal of selling 20 million Nintendo Switch consoles by the end of the fiscal year. Finally, we have a reason to believe that goal as Reggie Fils-Aime says that Nintendo earns 60% of its revenue in October, November, and December.

We typically do, in the Americas, about 60% of our revenue during that time frame,” Fils-Aime told Yahoo Finance. “The reason that it’s so significant is first, our products make great gifts. Whether you’re talking about Nintendo Switch, whether you’re talking about Nintendo 2DS, we really do well with that gift- giving occasion.

Many considered it impossible when Nintendo revealed their goal of selling 20 Million Nintendo Switch consoles. According to Yahoo, Nintendo Switch has only sold 5 million units. But looking at the confidence of Nintendo, these remaining numbers can be achieved during the holiday season.

It’s true that Nintendo Switch deals and discounts are now dropping in. These Nintendo Switch deals and discounts will help Nintendo meet their revenue and sales goal.

We saw various Nintendo Switch deals and discounts during the Black Friday. Now as it’s over, Cyber Monday is here to bring the players with more Nintendo Switch deals and discounts like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Nintendo Switch bundle.

It’s very interesting to know this as other company’s like Sony and Microsoft rely on their year-round sales and successful games. Popular games also don’t usually release around the holiday season. Take Capcom for example which has to release two big games in the middle of 2019 instead of during the holiday season.

As for Nintendo, they have some tricks up their sleeves. One of them is the latest Pokemon Let’s Go!. Pokemon Let’s Go deals and discounts have been selling like hotcakes during the Black Friday weekend. Other games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are still selling well after a year of their release.

We will know the exact Nintendo Switch sales numbers in 2019 when Nintendo is going to share its sales and revenue details to the public.

It’s the beginning as Switch is continuously getting big games which players want. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is also expected to come on Switch sometime very soon. Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword was the final Zelda game on Wii so playing it again on Switch is a must.

This Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword port was teased by producer Eiji Aonuma during a recent Zelda concert.

Since we are talking about Switch games how can we not talk about the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate? Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the most anticipated title on Switch and the biggest since The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Pre-orders of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has made it the biggest title on Switch and also in the series. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will release on December 7 and we believe that it will sell like hotcakes.
