Nintendo Game & Watch and the Evolution of Classic Consoles
Nintendo evolved into the novel hardware and mobile gaming space following the 2014 financial losses resulting from market competition. Since mobile gaming provided stiff competition, Nintendo had to improve on the previous Wii U console. The new design used in creating Nintendo Switch appealed to a broad demographic of gamers. The same applies with the Nintendo Game & Watch. Much of the appeal came from the console's compatibility with game engines.
Also, the console features a design with standard electronic components for easier development. Since its development, the Nintendo Switch has been competing with other eighth-generation consoles such as PS4 and Xbox.
In its first month after launch, the console surpassed Nintendo's expectations when it shipped almost three million units. Surprisingly, it also outsold Wii U.
The numbers have gradually increased in sales since its launch. As of 2018, Nintendo Switch had emerged as the fastest-selling console in the United States and Japan. By June 2020, both Nintendo Switch Lite and Nintendo Switch had sold more than 60 million units across the globe.
There's no doubt that Nintendo Game & Watch will also generate millions of sales as the festive season approaches.
