Nintendo compares Switch and Wii's digital business, talks Switch accessory sales

Digital is booming

Coming from Nintendo's investor Q&A...

Question: In the presentation, you compared sales per hardware unit for Wii and Nintendo Switch. Can you explain why Nintendo Switch sales grew so much more each year than Wii did?

A6 Furukawa: The digital business environment surrounding Nintendo Switch has changed tremendously, compared to what it was for Wii. A multitude of download-only software titles are available for Nintendo Switch, and there is also the subscription service, Nintendo Switch Online, which is something Wii did not have. Another factor is the extremely good sales of accessories like Joy-Con and the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller.
