Let's say GTA6 and Tears of the Kingdom would have launched in the same month. I'm pretty sure TotK would not have sold a single copy less, nor would the TotK Switch version. There are audiences out there that don't care for GTA6 or prefer other franchises more.

Tons of gamers are casuals that buy games based on hype, when everyone is talking about something it makes you wanna join the party and looking at the reveal trailer views this will be far aways the most anticipated game of all time. so yes it would have effected TOTK sales but more importantly with switch 2 it could slow it down a bit when the biggest game ever is not on your console. 

Biggest game ever will be on Switch 2, it's called Minecraft. No one here denies GTA 6 will be huge but you are grossly overestimating it. You make GTA sound like it's the end all be all but it sits in fourth all time. Mario, Pokemon, and Call of Duty have all sold more games than GTA. Mario and Pokemon are exclusives and Call of Duty is a younger franchise and caught it. Doesn't sound like it's anywhere near as big of a deal as you make it. Minecraft outsold it by over 100 million, I would argue Fortnite is also bigger than GTA. I want you to actually do some research about how many monthly active users GTA has and compare to Minecraft or Fortnite or Roblox. You will be surprised.
