Reggie shared the following:

This holiday season will be especially important for Nintendo. The heavy hitters of the year – Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu / Eevee and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – are finally launching, and the company will need success in order to reach its goal of selling 20 million Switch systems this fiscal year.

The holidays are also important for Nintendo due to the high amount of sales collected during the period. Reggie said that “in the Americas, about 60% of our revenue during that time frame.”
