Switch outsells Wii U in less than a year

As can be seen in the infographic above, Switch has surpasses 14.86 million units sold, while the 3DS has reached a quota of 71.99 million.

Switch just smashed Nintendo's expectations and has already outsold its predecessor, the Wii U. Wii U port, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe takes second place at 7.33 million units so far and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is actually in third with its 6.7 million sales.

Splatoon 2 - a sequel to one of Nintendo's newest original properties - sold 4.91 million copies. After 7.23 million Switch console got sold like hotcakes, the total tally nearly doubled.

Operating profit in the December quarter came in at 116.5 billion yen, based on figures derived from reported nine-month results.

All told it has been a great year for the company, but do you think that Switch can maintain this momentum throughout 2018? After the way in which the Wii U flopped, many financial pundits suggested that Nintendo was in the last-chance saloon.

Nintendo's latest accessory for the Switch is a collection of foldable cardboard sheets that turn the console into a piano, robot or fishing rod. The company has promised that a new Pokemon game for the console will also be released in the future.

In fact, Nintendo reports that eight games on Switch have now sold over one million copies, five of which are first-party Nintendo titles.

Indeed, the hybrid console sold 7.23 million units during the last quarter alone, taking lifetime sales to a cool 14.86 million units. Marquee title Super Mario Odyssey sold through over 9 million units, and has become the system's biggest seller. In Japan, Nintendo sold about 3.72 million consoles. I think the cardboard is going to sell surprisingly well, even at almost $100.

Part of the Switch's success can be attributed to its ability to attract non-gamers, and Kimishima said strong sales in 2018 would continue to depend on this.
