Japanese firm Ace Economic Research Institute is expecting Nintendo Switch to do even better this fiscal year than Nintendo’s own prediction, thanks to highly-anticipated games such as Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu, Let’s Go Eevee and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The following excerpt comes from the folks at DualShockers regarding this:
The firm’s analyst Hideki Yasuda recently released his analysis of the company’s finances, and came up with an intriguing forecast. He expects Nintendo’s revenue to for the full fiscal year to be 1.36 trillion yen, with an operating income of 330 billion yen. This is significantly higher than Nintendo’s own predictions because Yasuda-san expects the manufacturer to ship 25 million Switch units and 140 million software units. This would bring Switch shipments all the way to 42.79 million units by March 31st, 2019, instead of the 37.79 expected by Nintendo.
