Nintendo Switch and PS4 Are Revitalizing Gaming Market, Says Koei Tecmo
It will be interesting to see how it plans to support both systems going forward.
The Xbox One’s sales are slowing down, especially as would be buyers prepare for the Xbox One X’s launch later this year before springing on it, but it looks like the console market is revitalized nonetheless. The credit for that, it seems, goes to Sony’s PS4, which continues its utter domination of the market, and to Nintendo’s Switch, which has been a surprise success beyond all expectation.
Speaking at a financial meeting, Koei Tecmo confirmed that their business is expected to perform strong, thanks to a revitalized console market on the back of the performance of the Nintendo Switch and the PS4. Given the investment the company has made in these two platforms – it has major games lined up for both – it certainly makes sense that their success is bolstering its own business.
Going forward, it will be interesting to see how Tecmo decides to split its support up between PS4 and Switch- will it adopt a multiplatform strategy of supporting both with all of its games? Or will it dole out exclusives to both, with little cross pollination? The next year or so promises to be interesting.
