Nintendo Says NX Will Compensate For Drop In Wii U Sales


Nintendo have come out and said that while they expect the Wii U to have a huge drop in sales in 2017, they believe that the continued success of the Nintendo 3DS and the arrival of the Nintendo NX will compensate.

Tatsumi Kimishima said in a recent Nintendo Q&A..

“We are predicting about 800,000 Wii U hardware sales in the fiscal year ending March 2017, which is a decrease of about 2.4 million units compared to the previous year. NX and smart device business will be essential to cover this gap, but we also expect download content business to play a role. However, we are planning with the expectation that NX sales will compensate for much of the impact on sales from reduced Wii U hardware sales.”

The official name of the Nintendo NX has yet to be announced. The system will be released in March 2017.
