13.5 million Switches for the next FY is extremely ambitious considering the hardware's advanced age and suggests they have some major software still to be announced, as they sure ain't gonna sell that much with just the Paper Mario and Luigi's Mansion remakes they have scheduled. A price cut seems unlikely given the economic circumstances, with prices increasing rather than decreasing across the market.

In the meantime, a rather quiet quarter, but that's to be expected given the hardware's now in its 8th year and their lineup so far this year has been rather lightweight.

Looks like 5m could be on the table for Pikmin 4 which is awesome growth for what's used to be a relatively niche franchise.

Nintendo is a conservative company. They would not forecast 13.5 million if they did not think they could meet it. But I agree it does look very high looking from the outside.

Nintendo must have something up its sleeve, we don't know about.

Looking at their Revenue and Profit forecast for FY2025, they expect a big drop. So some kind of price promotion could be on the table either going full on pack-in software or indeed price cuts.
