Will be interesting to see how the ongoing boost of Mario Maker 2 plays against the possible drop in sales caused by the Lite being announced so far out from release. Will Switch be able to stay above 200k, or will we see it fall hard for the next two months? Hardware numbers will certainly suffer in Japan, but will the West care enough about the Lite to hold off on grabbing regular Switches?

The summer lineup should prevent sales from dipping too much. Fire Emblem, Marvel Ultimate Alliance, Astral Chain & Daemon x Machina are 4 Nintendo published titles releasing between now and Lite and while none of them are likely to be massive sellers, they should keep sales from plummeting.

Let's hope so. It has a hell of a lot of momentum coming off Mario Maker 2 as well, and I suppose the Lite won't appeal to all buyers as the original model remains preferable in some ways. Gonna be interesting to see how the next 2 and a bit months unfold.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
