Do you think they will hit their revised sales goal and end the fiscal year on 54.2 mill? Has the corona virus ruined that with the shortages it has caused? Is Animal Crossing and the Animal Crossing Switch enough to make up the difference?

The shortages in Japan cause of the Coronavirus is the main reason why the Switch is slightly down Y-o-Y. If there weren't any shortages in Japan right now the Switch would be way up Y-o-Y. So Switch interest isn't dying at all and it's still growing, just shortages are limiting that growth
