Mat Piscatella of NPD points out that Nintendo is experiencing an exceptional period in terms of hardware and software sales in North America, with total domination in the first half of 2019 and a growing trend.
The analyst does not report precise data in this regard, but he does say that ” Nintendo Switch sales are currently driving the American hardware market with a considerable detachment compared to the competitive one and also from the software point of view Nintendo is currently the number one publisher for sales in North America in 2019, with no signs of slowing down for the foreseeable future. “
It seems therefore that this positive trail is destined to continue throughout the rest of the year (and probably even beyond) thanks to releases such as The Legend of Zelda Link’s Awakening , Pokemon Sword and Shield and Luigi’s Mansion 3, in addition to the continued success of best sellers like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Super Smash Bros Ultimate.
However, there is no exact information regarding Europe, where Switch is still achieving considerable commercial success with regards to hardware and software sales.
Switch hardware sales are currently leading the US market in a big way, Nintendo is the leading software publisher, and neither of these facts show any signs of slowing anytime soon.
