(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) The Nintendo Switch is officially on sale Friday (March 3) in Japan. Outside a Bic Camera electronics store in Tokyo, eager fans lined up around the block for the new video game console. "I can enjoy playing it with my family or alone or with my girlfriend, if I happen to find one," said 20-year-old university student Shuhei Matsuo. Other fans had even flown in from abroad hoping to get their hands on the device. "I couldn't sleep last night because of this, so I'm very excited to purchase this because I came from Korea to buy this, so I'm very excited," said 30-year-old engineer Jung Jae Ha. At the end of January, Nintendo disappointed investors with a one-third cut to its full-year operating profit outlook, blaming fewer-than-expected downloads of console games and slower sales of "amiibo" character goods. Nintendo made a full-fledged entry into mobile gaming in January with the launch of of its first own-brand title, Super Mario Run. Even so, it is still counting on the Switch, its first console in four years, to revive earnings which rely heavily on console sales. The Switch has been closely watched, especially its software lineup. Analysts said the low number of software titles for the Wii U was among the major reasons for that console's failure.
