Why did Switch drop YOY for this NPD? Was any notable release last year?

It was down slightly in January NPD as well. January 2019 saw the release of New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe and Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes as more notable titles. I don't recall anything big released in February 2019. If it wasn't for the coronavirus, the Switch would easily be up in March due to Animal Crossing. But right now it is hard to say. Digital game sales are looking great right now with so many people staying home. 

Understood. It is on a point that it could either be the plateau at the peak or just outside factors that in a couple months will normalize and 2020 still be a growth year for Switch.
