My opinion is that sales-wise, the Switch has demonstrated itself as the heir to Nintendo's combined handheld-home console legacy, combining their handhelds consistent hardware sales numbers with their home consoles' high first-party software attach rate. Given this, one would expect the general baseline for any Nintendo system going forward would be the combined numbers of the 3DS+Wii U at 89 million, a generation where everything that could have gone wrong for Nintendo did. I do not see any conceivable way it will end up below the 3DS's sales number of 76m. The most likely scenario for the Switch 2 is that it ends up somewhere around the current yearly active userbase number for the Switch which is currently hovering around 120m.
