Currently, the Nintendo Switch business remains in a growth phase. This term, we can expect hardware adoption to once again expand at a faster pace than the previous fiscal year.
Nintendo Switch is a home gaming system that can also be brought away from the front of the TV and played on the go. If we can specifically and more broadly convey messages of what kind of play experiences this game system can offer in what kind of situations in the consumers’ everyday lives, we believe more and more people worldwide will come to view Nintendo Switch as
something relevant to them.
In the new fiscal year, in addition to the evergreen titles that have been enjoying long, continued sales, Nintendo and other software publishers will release many new titles, including the ones that I will introduce shortly, that can convey the fun of playing Nintendo Switch to even more people. We will make efforts to bring the broader awareness of a variety of different entertainment experiences that the unique combination of Nintendo Switch hardware and a variety of different software can offer, not just among video game fans but even among people who have never before been interested in video games.
