Wii is about to REALLY extend that lead with the 2009 holiday. But it should be all Switch after that.

If not for the corona virus, I'm not sure Wii would even reach a new peak above Switch with the 2009 holiday. After Switch's 2020 holiday, I think the gap might reverse, especially if it's Switch's peak year. The 2010 Wii holiday might reverse the gap once more, but not by as much, and Switch will quickly overtake Wii again for good in 2021.
