Company president Shuntaro Furukawa previously set the forecast of Switch console sales at 18 million by the end of the fiscal year in March 2020. At the current pace they’ll need to sell 11.07 million units in the next two quarters to reach it, but it’ll be interesting to see how big of a third quarter they have with Pokémon Sword & Shield’s release among other titles.
