Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa revealed in the latest earnings call that around a fifth of the Switch family of systems that the company sold last year went to homes which already owned one. The company has said in the past that that was one of the goals with the versatile system, that families would own multiple Switch systems. Mr. Furukawa said that the Kyoto-based company is confident that that figure will continue to increase in in the years to come.
“In the previous fiscal year, household demand for multiple systems accounted for roughly 20% of unit sales of the Nintendo Switch family of systems,”Nintendo president, Shuntaro Furukawa
“Going forward, we expect demand for multiple systems per household will increase even as hardware unit sales grow,”Nintendo president, Shuntaro Furukawa
