Nintendo Rescues The Year For Video Game Sales

The Nintendo Co., Ltd (ADR) NTDOY Switch console has been a surprise hit for investors and has single-handedly rejuvenated U.S. video game sales. But according to NPD Group analyst Mat Piscatella, the Switch passed the torch to the recently-launched SNES Classic platform in the month of September.
