As you all know, Sony Interactive Entertainment revealed the PlayStation 5 on June 11, 2020.
Despite the announcement of the PlayStation 5, it did nothing to stop investors from losing confidence in Nintendo, whose Nintendo Switch is a competitor to the PlayStation 5.

Many speculate the strong success of Animal Crossing: New Horizons is leading to increased confidence in Nintendo.
