Forbes recently interviewed Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime, asking him a variety of questions.
One of the questions was the upcoming Nintendo Switch hardware revision due for 2019 as reported by the Wall Street Journal. Reggie says that Nintendo’s main focus is to ensure that the current Nintendo Switch models are selling well, and things like a hardware revision always come “a bit later in the life cycle”.
Read his full comments below:
“Right now, as we go into our second holiday, my focus is making sure the current grey and neon Switch continue to have momentum in the market place. You saw systems, whether it’s our own or competitive home console systems, utilize that tactic a bit later in the life cycle. So right now, the current execution of Nintendo Switch with the Joy-Con and all of the capabilities, that’s our focus right now.”
In addition, Reggie said he was confident that the Switch would sell 20 million units by the end of March 2019, thanks to the release of appealing games such as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Pokemon Let’s GO Pikachu/Eevee. He also pointed out both free and paid DLC are an important strategy to Nintendo.
