Nintendo has had a total blast with its Switch console, taking the world and gamers by storm with huge releases in its Mario and Zelda franchises, as well as the massively successful release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.


Now we have analysts from some of the largest gaming industry firms including the ever-vocal Michael Pachter, NPD Group's Mat Piscatella and Dr. Serkan Toto answering questions that asked about the Nintendo Switch and its dominance in 2019. IHS Markit's Piers Harding-Rolls said: "Switch will be the best selling console in 2019 as PS4 and Xbox One shift into the late stage phase of their sales lifecycles".

Kantam Games' Dr. Serkan Toto predicted last year that "2018 will be another successful year for Nintendo: Largely correct with Nintendo's year-end run".
