I think the word a lot of people are overlooking in  Jumpin's post is "only".

Covid was obviously a factor, but it was not the only one. Switch also got its biggest killer app in 2020, Animal Crossing, which became a pop culture phenomenon and opened up the console to a whole new audience who wouldn't have bought one for Mario or Zelda or Smash.

Animal crossing came out at the same time lockdowns happened. It just happened to be the killer app people got with the Switch due to Covid. 

It would have been a huge killer app with or without covid. It broadened the system's appeal to a huge untapped audience and greatly increased Switch's appeal to women and casuals.



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