In the same interview with Forbes, Nintendo of America took President Reggie Fils-Aimé time to discuss current Switch sales and reinforced how the company's immediate focus was on the holiday season.
When asked for a possible hardware audit, Reggie gave the following statement:
"At the moment, when we go into our second vacation, I make sure that the current gray and neon switch is still on the market. You see systems, whether our own or competitive home console systems, exploit it tactics a little later in the lifecycle. So right now, the current performance of Nintendo Switch with Joy-Con and all the possibilities, that's our focus right now. "
He further explained how the holiday season was a critical time for the company:
"We feel safe in our momentum, and it's not just a star launch PokémonIt's not just what seems to be a star launch for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The black Friday through the Cyber Monday time frame was critically important to us, the remaining shopping days now through Christmas are critically important to us. Several days after Christmas, when consumers receive gift cards or take unwanted gifts and earn money on things that Nintendo Switch is important to us. So it will be a continuous effort to ensure that we run our business through the balance of this holiday season, but also in the first quarter of the quarter. "
