With Nintendo Switch Lite launching simultaneously with the release of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, the attach rate is understandably high, as it has also been during the initial stage for titles that are preferred by core gamers, such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Nintendo Co., Ltd. President Shuntaro Furukawa says that as the consumer base broadens, “I think this might change”.
