He says Smash Bros sales passed 5 million globally in week 1.
Says Switch is the home console seeing the fastest software sales so far in Nintendo's history.
2) Continues to say Switch software sales started picking up steam in mid-November.— Dr. Serkan Toto / Kantan Games Inc. (@serkantoto) January 16, 2019
(Comment: That was when Pokemon went on sale, so no surprise.)
Says Switch is currently offered in 60 countries.
3) Reconfirms he sees smartphone gaming as a pillar of earnings.— Dr. Serkan Toto / Kantan Games Inc. (@serkantoto) January 16, 2019
Says he wants to land smartphone hits and publish multiple apps across multiple fields. (Comment: Not really clear what he means.)
Interview closes with some not so interesting points on DeNA, eSports etc.
Mighty impressive I would say.
