The Year of Nintendo

Published

on

2020, what a year. Also what a year for Nintendo, and when we say Nintendo–we are meaning the Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo has a way of integrating itself through a variety of markets. Children, Adults young and old can all enjoy the simplicity and G-rated fun of it’s systems. Whether you want to take a trip down nostalgia lane with Mario Kart or Zelda, or if your a rambunctious 6-year-old with the attention span of a fly, Nintendo has a game for you.

The Wii U was a bit of a let down, especially when you compare it next to it’s older brother the Wii. This has not been the case for the Nintendo Switch. A powerful system in terms of game library and performance, not to mention handheld capabilities which has really set this system apart. Sure the 2020 pandemic may have aided it’s sales, but it was already a very successful product prior.

The days of competing with the Xbox One and PS4 are now over. The new systems of Sony and Microsoft are on the horizon. Although with that being said, this should not completely take out the Nintendo Switch. It will put a dent into their sales, but they have already established themselves as a formidable company, and their strong sales should continue into 2021, especially with the holidays edging every bit closer.

The Switch operates with two main models, the regular model and the Lite (which can only be used as a handheld) which have now combined for 55 million units sold. What makes this number even more staggering is that this year alone they have sold 20 million of these units. One would imagine how incredible these numbers will expand come holiday season.

With a gaming library that continues to expand and strip away titles from it’s competitors, the Nintendo Switch is a force to be reckoned with. Nintendo has done a wonderful job setting itself apart from it’s competitors by not only having their amazing first-party games, but also adding popular titles that are on Sony and Microsoft consoles, it not only has games for everyone, but games for adults as well. If 2020 was the year of Nintendo, it surely will be interesting to see what they have in store for an encore.
