  1. In essence Switch sports is the number one game sold, solidly number 2 when digital is factored in. Nintendo being video gaming’s wholeness deserves this. They provide gaming with real and fun factor led way. Gaming mechanics and software for all ages; cultivated in every genre.


  2. If Switch sports is selling this high, I don’t wanna think about Mario Strikers.

    I give that game 4 to 5 months and it will be up there with Animal Crossing and Smash Bros.
