WSJ: Nintendo expects to sell 10 million Switch units in the next fiscal year
Posted on 1 year ago by Matt(@OnePunchMaz) in News, Switch | 39 Comments | 0 Likes
To follow up on our earlier article on Nintendo’s plans to double the amount of Switch console’s produced in the next fiscal year, Nintendo will naturally expect to sell more of those units as well.
All of this comes from sources from the Wall Street Journal, and while they have traditionally been very reliable with matters like this, take this with a grain of salt. As we reported earlier, Nintendo plans to produce 16 million Switch units in the next fiscal year (April 2017 – March 2018). In that period, according to the Wall Street Journal, Nintendo plans to sell a total of 10 million of them. Adding to that the 2.5 million units Nintendo has targeted for this fiscal year (i.e. this March), this would bring the Switch’s expected first year sales to about 12.5 million. Certainly an ambitious goal, but given the Switch’s strong launch sales and positive buzz, definitely not impossible.
We will likely hear an official statement regarding Nintendo’s Switch plans at the company’s Fiscal Year Earnings release on April 27th.

Shun Nakamura is the producer of Sonic Forces

On his personal Twitter page, SEGA’s Shun Nakamura announced that he is the producer of Sonic Forces. Let’s talk about his previous roles at the company.
Most will likely attach Nakamura to the very disappointing Sonic the Hedgehog title from 2006, as he was the game’s director. He’s done much more than that, however. Nakamura was also the director of Samba de Amigo, Rhythm Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure, and Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg. Nakamura was involved with a number of previous Sonic games as well.

Flatout 4 publisher on Switch version: “It’s certainly possible”
Posted on 1 year ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 9 Comments | 0 Likes
Flatout 4 has a decent shot of landing on Switch. While speaking with One Angry Gamer, Susan Cummings from publisher Strategy First said that “It’s certainly possible.”
“It’s certainly possible. It’s definitely something Strategy First have been watching with interest – the early success of the Switch. I wouldn’t say anything is out of the question.”
Flatout 4’s chances on Switch could come down to the system’s sales and interest from the community. On the former point at least, the platform seems to be performing well on the market so far.
