I can see Sword and Shield selling 12+ million by the end of the regular year.

Switch. It prints money.

Proves it takes hard work and proper advertising to get sales. Wii U definitely did not print money

I still think the WiiU was a very important step in Nintendo's console evolution and the concept was fantastic. I still wish the switch had extra hardware in the dock to boost performance other than simply down-clocking and over-clocking. I know it would've cost more but it also wouldav increased its output. Maybe the next console will be that. We'll have to wait n see

More Switch lites this week. Pkmn being portable game originaly may explain this.
