Nintendo’s President Tatsumi Kimishima has revealed that he expects the Nintendo Switch to sell as well as the Nintendo Wii. This is due to the fact that the Nintendo Switch, just like the Wii, offers gamers a unique way of playing games.
Apparently the Wii U did not do this as he has stated that the last financial year was a bottom year for Nintendo. He expects this to increase from this year onwards.
Kimishima also commented on Nintendo movies in which he said were coming, but the dates of these were unknown.
He also confirmed that the Nintendo 3DS and Switch businesses would run alongside.
