Nintendo France on Switch sales expectations, games, 3DS
Gamekult has a new interview up with Nintendo France’s Philippe Lavoue. Among other things, Lavoue discussed sales expectations for Switch.
So far, Nintendo is seeing pre-orders similar to those of Wii in France. The company also expects to sell 800,000 units this year, which would be the lifetime sales of Wii U. That includes 95,000 units on day one with a near 100 percent conversion rate with Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Gray is currently more popular than the neon option at the moment. However, Lavoue thinks things will ultimately shift in the opposite direction.

In an interview with alistdaily, GameStop senior director of merchandising Eric Bright spoke about Switch in-depth. One big takeaway is that the retailer is seeing “tremendous demand.”
“We’ve seen tremendous demand for Switch. And of the initial allocation of pre-orders we took, the majority of them were done by PowerUp Reward customers. They’re definitely looking for this device. We have a ways to go before we satisfy all the demand that’s out there.”
Bright brought up several positive points about Switch: the portable factor, Q1 launch, third-party games, and support of indies.
