While we still have a few more months to learn more about the Nintendo Switch, Wall Street Journal’s Takashi Mochizuki had a few quotes to share from the company and CEO Tatsumi Kimishima.

 

According to the WSJ technology reporter, Kimishima-san said that the “company won’t make loss by selling it; but also listening to what consumers expect from us when setting price.

 

He also mentioned that the “current FY financial guidance assumes 2 million units of Switch to be shipped this fiscal year ending in March”

 

Considering that the Nintendo Switch is expected to launch sometime in March 2017, that means the company expects to ship out 2 million units of the upcoming console worldwide within the month of its release.

 

On another note, the Nintendo CEO expressed his confidence that after the full unveiling of Switch, consumers would understand that it would be different from the 3DS.
