Lite should be a big hit over the holidays, Lite+Pokemon is a great 1-2 punch for getting kids/parents on board.

It will likely have the best holiday seen this generation. 

I'm thinking so too, should be a 10+ million shipment quarter.

They should easily beat their forecast for the current fiscal year. While all other platforms are in their twilight years, the Switch is still on its way up.

I agree and I'm curious what they have in store for next year to keep momentum high.

The big holiday titles will make sure Winter sales are strong then Animal Crossing will move alot of units in Spring so I can see the first half of the year being up YoY but they are going to need to do alot to make sure sales dont start declining in the 2nd half.

This year had Mario Maker (last week of H1), Fire Emblem, 2D Zelda, Luigi's Mansion, Pokemon and a surprise hit in Ring Fit plus an improved model and a cheaper revision.

That's a stacked lineup to contend with so I expect the 2nd half of 2020 to be when we start seeing sales decline. Potential releases like BotW2 & Pokemon Gen 4 remakes will be big sellers and move hardware but diminishing returns will come into play so perhaps a price cut is in order (Hybrid-$249.99, Lite-$169.99).

Animal Crossing will move units. What will be the big release(s) in holiday 2020? That is tough to answer. I'd love to see Mario Odyssey 2 or a full blown Mario 64 remake. BotW2 is probably a bit further off. I wonder if a New Super Mario Bros. Switch makes sense or if Mario Maker 2 has satisfied the desire for 2D Mario games. A Pokemon remake would sell plenty as the series always has done. 

Nintendo likes making profits over its console sales, so a price cut next year only makes sense is if they can still profit. I'd see the Lite dropping to $180 and standard Switch dropping to $249, but not lower. More likely Nintendo does a bundle with MK8D than drops the price.

So the Switch is already rising at the eve of Pokemon. It's gonna go kaboom fairly soon.

The Switch Lite Pokemon Edition released in Japan, which has to be the cause for some of the boost in sales in Japan, along with Luigi's Mansion.

True, but I am also looking at the US and Europe.

It's still a bit surreal to me that the Switch will outsell the Xbox One this year. Didn't think it'd happen so fast.

Luigi's Mansion is the reason for the boost in the US and Europe. Not a big boost mind you something like 10-15%.
