Nintendo Switch Outsells Wii U

Nintendo Switch Outsells Wii U

In less than a year.

The Switch follows the relative failure of the Wii U, which sold only 13 million consoles between its 2012 launch and 2016-almost 90 million less than its predecessor, the Wii.

Through the first nine months of the fiscal year, Nintendo's net income (profit) was 194.563 bn yen (approximately US$1.79bn, assuming current market rate of US$1 = ¥108.7).

It's expected that the upcoming Pokemon Switch game will be a sales juggernaut for Nintendo, with many projecting it will outsell Super Mario Odyssey, which has now sold over 9 million copies to date.

It's official. In just under 11 months, Nintendo Switch has beaten the sales of the Wii U's entire lifecycle. Overall, 52.7 million Switch games have been sold to date. After the way in which the Wii U flopped, many financial pundits suggested that Nintendo was in the last-chance saloon. In addition, of course, there's an impending core Pokémon game, that should see sales of the system skyrocket even more. It now expects to make a profit of 160 billion yen ($1.47 billion/£1.03 billion), 33.3% above previous forecasts.

In its earnings report, Nintendo offered the region-wise breakdown of the total Switch sales as well. That will also mean an increase in game revenue, as Nintendo cranks up the franchise releases for its console.

Nintendo Switch consoles can be picked up for £279.99 with no games.

Nintendo hiked its annual net profit forecast by more than 40 percent Wednesday after its popular Switch console flew off shelves during the holiday season, fuelled by a cheaper yen. On a table listing upcoming releases for primary Nintendo products, the untitled Pokemon Switch title is still scheduled for a "2018 or later" release. A chart from Statista reveals that though only a few developers are now working on the relatively new console, it is only behind Windows PC and PS4 when it comes to attracting developer interest. With third-party game developers not expected to release blockbuster titles for the Switch until at least 2019, 2018 could bring a drop off in sales.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has now sold 7.33m, while Zelda: Breath of the Wild is on 6.7m.
