With the latest NPD results it seems the Switch isn't reaching the same audience of the Wii and DS. It's like it has a lower baseline, and that is probably because like any core console audience, the Switch audience respond directly to game releases. And we all know the Switch doesn't really get a steady stream of big game releases. The PS4 and Xbox One do, however.

This year so far alone they both have had Monster Hunter, Far Cry 5, God Of War which have driven sales for these systems. It seems Nintendo's first sales driver on that level they'l get this year will be Smash Bros in the fall. And then what if Pokemon is a 2019 game?

Is there a way Nintendo can produce more sales spikes for the system?
