"I was relieved by a strong start of the Switch," Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima said at a news briefing. "If the 10 million target is achieved ... that means the sales momentum would be close to the Wii," Nintendo's most successful console ever.


Asked if the profit outlook is too low in light of the Switch sales forecast, Kimishima said it is not an easy target because the company is stepping up marketing costs for the Switch.
The solid intial sales momentum is raising industry desires that the Switch, a hybrid and handheld gadget, could repeat the success of the Wii.The Wii, launched in November 2006, sold about 20 million units in its first year, with lifetime sales of over 100 million units.
"Nintendo has learned a many from its past failure," Hirokazu Hamamura, a director at Japanese publisher Kadokawa Dwango and a gaming expert.He also said one of the best reasons behind the strong start is that unlike its predecessor Wii U, the Switch has a long list of titles made by independent studios as Nintendo has made the new console compatible with very popular game engines it also publicly available to developers from the start.

The early success of the Switch has also developed hopes for a long-term recovery in Nintendo's earnings, sending the company's shares about 20 percent higher since the console debut.
Robust Wii demand drove Nintendo's operating achievment to a record JPY 555 billion in the year ended in March 2009, as profit from a new console typically rise a couple years after launch when the software lineup expands.


Some Experts, however, are sceptical about the sustainability of the current sales momentum.Jay Defibaugh, analyst at CLSA, said in a recent report that the early popularity is being driven not by the game that most clearly demonstrates the defining properties of the Switch, such as the controller with a motion detection camera, "but by a game that may as well be a PlayStation or Xbox game."
