Yes, in many ways the Switch is a replacement for the 3DS as well as for the Wii U. It seems difficult to imagine that there will be many Switch owners who will feel the need to go and buy a separate handheld console. So, the Switch is a success in comparison to the Wii U, but it may not be a clear success in comparison to the Wii U and DS range combined.
