Nintendo Co.’s Switch gaming console is in the middle of its life cycle and the company is preparing to give it a boost with a large injection of new games in the next year and beyond, company President Shuntaro Furukawa said in an online briefing Wednesday.

Released in 2017, the Switch is now in its fourth year on the market but experiencing its fastest sales, boosted by the success of Animal Crossing: New Horizons and a global surge in entertainment demand caused by coronavirus lockdowns.
