Speaking with Fox News, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime spoke about the Nintendo Switch and how its settings records in the United States. Of course he didn’t mention any specific numbers so for now we are calling this a PR spin.
The reaction to Nintendo Switch has been remarkable. Every day we’re setting new records from a US perspective, meaning, you know, today I can look back and see how I compare to the launch of the Wii or the Nintendo DS or the Nintendo 3DS, and I’m setting sales records every day with the Nintendo Switch.
The reaction has been fantastic. Consumers want it, I’ve been with industry peers, they’re excited with what we’re doing and hoping to drive the industry. I’ve seen the games, like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, right now the fourth highest-rated game in the history of videogames.
We’ve turned the industry on its ear and to do that, to be part of a company that has a reputation for doing it on a regular basis, has been tremendous.
What do you think of the Nintendo Switch? Are you planning on getting one? Have you already? Do you think it will reach Wii-level sales like Nintendo says? Leave your comments below.
