Nintendo is On a Strong Streak

Few people remember back in the mid-90s where there was a little bit of trouble with the Nintendo 64. For one thing, there have been plenty of delays. Another thing is that the company has stuck with the cart format which has been made obsolete with the advent of CD based consoles. The Nintendo 64 has ultimate lost to the Sony Playstation as the last cart based Nintendo system. The next console would be CD based like the rest of the consoles. Some of the stronger sales in Nintendo gaming systems has been the Nintendo Wii.

Nintendo has recently released the Nintendo Switch which has been one of the stronger selling systems. As a matter of fact, the company has recently announced that it has sold 10 Million units in just 9 months. This is a strong release. Nintendo has definitely shown an ability to adapt with the times. It has also shown that it can include people of all ages. The Nintendo Gamecube and Wii have been known to be very kiddie as consoles. When the Wii U came out, Nintendo has started including more mature gaming content remembering that it has fans of all ages.

The Switch marks the return of some fighting game franchises such as Street Fighter II. Among the games that have been released to the Switch exclusively is Ultra Street Fighter II, which is likely going to be the last version of Street Fighter II released. Fans still have the other games like Street Fighter III IV and V available on different consoles. Even if The Switch does not beat out the Wii, it is very likely that it is going to have a strong sell for the holiday season. The only thing that remains to be seen is if it is going to keep up the selling strength for the year of 2018.
