The Nintendo Switch launch, in many charts

The Wii broke the Nintendo Co. Ltd. 7974, -0.93% curse of having every new console sell less than the one before it, and early returns from the Japanese gaming giant’s latest release, the Switch, suggest it could happen again.

With strong early sales for the Switch, investors like what they see so far, with Nintendo’s stock rising almost 15% since the console launched on March 3. But that kind of bounce actually might seem tame for Nintendo after the past year, which included a dramatic 112% rise after the July release of the PokemonGo mobile app and the 29% bounce after Super Mario Run was released for Apple Inc.
