As many of you know, Nintendo recently held a meeting with investors to present the financial position of the company this fiscal year.
This time the company has published a transcript of the question-and-answer session with investors in English, which we will share with you when translating the alien below:
Q1: Considering the Nintendo Switch List Sales by region are domestic sales with sales outside Japan 2: 8. Considering the fact that Nintendo Switch Lite was designed for portable games, my impression is that sales outside Japan are even higher than expected. How would you rate sales outside of Japan compared to Nintendo's expectations? In addition, the presentation showed that the percentage of users who purchased Nintendo Switch Lite as the first system did not differ significantly from those who bought it as the second system. Were there regional differences in this trend?
R1– Shutaro Furukawa: One of the features of Nitnendo Switch are the three different game modes that allow the user to freely switch their play style between TV, desktop or portable modes. Enjoy games anytime, anywhere and with everyone. Nintendo Switch Lite, on the other hand, is a version of Nintendo Switch for portable games that is more compact, lighter, and makes playing on the move easier. I think consumers can now choose a system that fits their lifestyle with the introduction of a Nintendo Switch with such features.
Whether Nintendo Switch Lite sales rate is high outside of Japan Unlike previous handheld systems, we did not launch Nitnendo Switch Lite until September 20. In my opinion, (regional) sales reflect the current dynamics of Nintendo Switch rather than a trend in the notebook or console market Desktop For example, in a foreign market like the US. As this is a very large area, a certain number of units have to be sent to raise awareness of the introduction of a new product, and prices in this initial state also reflect this.
Original Nintendo Switch Lite Status Information In today's presentation, we said that there are no major differences in the number of buyers of Nintendo Switch Lite as the first portable console by region, compared to the Nintendo Switch Buy Lite as a second console.
