Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun, a Japanese publication, recently posted a very short interview with Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa. In the interview, Furukawa confirmed that the Switch is the “home console seeing the fastest software sales so far in Nintendo’s history”. Furukawa used Smash Ultimate as an example. The game surpassed 5,000,000 worldwide sales in its first week. However, Furukawa does say that software sales “picked up steam” starting in mid-November, when Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee released. As for smartphones, Furukawa reconfirmed that he sees smartphone gaming as a “pillar of earnings”. The tweets that relayed the news can be read down below.
