NPD analyst Mat Piscatella has made predictions on how the video gaming industry will do during the holiday season. Piscatella begins by discussing their May report, which said that the “Nintendo Switch has the second highest time-aligned installed base for a console in history, trailing only the Wii to this point”. Afterwards, Piscatella makes his predictions. Piscatella thinks that Nintendo’s good fortunes will continue. He says that “driven by the launches of Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!, Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Nintendo Switch will be the best-selling console of the fourth quarter in unit sales, while also elevating the platform to be the best-selling console of the year”.
