If they add a price drop to that....
Good lord, the Switch is gonna explode in Japan next year.

If they manage to reach those 20M in this FY, I really could see Nintendo get close to DS level sales next year. Especially if there are some more games coming from Nintendo or some more high-profile Multiplats.

I was just thinking, with all these announcements and the lineup we're looking at for the rest of 2018 and heading into 2019, Nintendo should be able to reach that goal of 20 million for the fiscal year. They're going to be riding high off the holidays going into next year from Smash and Pokemon, and they'll have New Mario U in January to kick things off, and yeah, it may be a port, but it's still 2D Mario, and as we've seen with just about every other Wii U port to the Switch, the mainstream audience doesn't care if it's a port. So, I think they should be able to reach it now. 
And as for next fiscal year, if this Direct is an indication of what 2019 and early 2020 will be like, I could see 22-25 million; Basically 2008-2009, peak Wii levels!
