^ It seems quite a few video game analysts seem to think so. I'll have to find the sources again to back it up, but they must be getting it from somewhere. Still, I very much agree with you, the Wii opened up experiences to so many casual players and people who don't generally play video games. Certainly some of those same people will end up buying a Switch due to games like 1-2 Switch, but for the most part I really don't think it's gonna explode in the same way the Wii did with that type of customer. EVERYONE wanted a Wii, whether they were a gamer or not.

I was actually surprised at how well 1-2-Switch sold. Wonder which geographical demographic it sold best in (I would suspect the young-middle aged population demographic who bought a Switch for weekend get together parties would have bought it; not as convinced for younger kid parties tbh)

If anything Switch would probably pull over Vita/PSP's demographic if the possible trend of mainly Japanese devs moving from Vita to Switch eventuates, which combined with a Nintendo core and I guess the non-factional gamers who like the value prospect of Switch results in what I think will be solid (not super impressive though) sustained interest over the console's lifetime

Nintendo of Europe will release a new Splatoon 2 Switch bundle on July 21st.



This is a smart move to finally include a game and I'm sure it will be sold in Japan if they also get a bundle.

I NEED IT TO COME TO NA RIGHT NOW. I want a Switch so badly once this game releases so hopefully the bundle will be pretty affordable.

Watch the bundle be overpriced when converted to AUD >.>

Surprised ARMS isn't getting a bundle it's probably a good title to sell the motion control aspect of Swtich

^ Hm that is true, and it seems like they're planning a pretty big launch for it. Maybe they'll release one later on? Although I can't see why they would do that.
