Nintendo's plan to make sure everyone can get a Switch in 2018

Nintendo's plan to make sure everyone can get a Switch in 2018

Starting Wednesday, Switch users can download Hulu directly from the Nintendo eShop and subscribe to Hulu's core $7.99 streaming service or its $39.99 live TV plan, Richard Irving, VP of product at Hulu, said in a blog post.

The hybrid nature of the console is what Nintendo seems to be betting on.

In a first for the EMAs, which were created in 1994, MTV announced categories stripped of gender in a bid to "break barriers". Taylor Swift, who was expected to be one of the big winners of the night with six nominations, failed to win any awards.

"We have increased our Nintendo Switch shipment projections for this fiscal year from 10 million units to 14 million units", Nintendo's Tatsumi Kimishima stated during the question and answer period of the call.

The Nintendo Switch has certainly been having a prolific inaugural year with hit titles like The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild and Mario Odyssey taking full advantage of the portable system.

The only major first-party Switch title still to come in the year is Xenoblade Chronicles 2, offering players a massive fantasy world to explore during the holiday break. If the Switch sells well enough over the course of the coming holiday season, production could be ramped up even higher; the plan is still developing and relatively flexible.

According to a recent Wall Street Journal story, that number is set to increase exponentially in 2018. Sales of Nintendo software have been brisk as well with the two crown jewels of Super Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild selling two million and nearly three million units so far, respectively.

Nintendo has always had a tenuous relationship with supply and demand, and gamers don't need long memories to recall the issues with both the SNES and NES Classic. The Nintendo Switch's success, though, leaves an uncertain future for the handheld lineup of the iconic Japanese powerhouse.
