Shuntaro Furukawa interview

In a short interview with Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun (a Japanese newspaper), Shuntaro Furukawa shared a few interesting tidbits. He revealed that the Nintendo Switch is seeings “the fastest software sales so far in Nintendo’s history”, though it’s not clear whether this refers to specific games, or global Software sales (unlikely). He also explained that Software sales started picking up steam in mid-November, which is when Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! / Let’s Go, Eevee was released.

As of this month, the Nintendo Switch is available in available in 60 countries around the world.
