Nintendo has announced that it has distributed 14.86 million Switch units worldwide since its launch, updated to December 31, 2017.
Switch just smashed Nintendo's expectations and has already outsold its predecessor, the Wii U. It joins six other games from 2017 that sold north of a million units on the Switch.
Nintendo's rolled out the red carpet for its latest hardware and software figures, confirming Super Mario Odyssey is the best-selling game on Switch having sold an earth-shattering 9.07 million units globally.
During its debut month, the Nintendo Switch sold 2.74 million units. They need to sell 2.87 million units during the current quarter to meet that forecast. With a total company revenue of 4.44 billion USA - a 177% year over year rise, and an operating profit up 261% year over year, Nintendo is printing money right now.
This number beats out its predecessor's lifetime sales, which is an wonderful accomplishment for a console that isn't even a year old.
Profits also came in at an eight-year-high of ¥116.5bn (£1.3bn), marking a whopping year-over-year increase of 261 per cent. The strong sales of the console have led to Nintendo's biggest money-making quarter since 2009, with profits of over $1 billion.
The Switch can positively dominate 2018.
Growing popularity of the hybrid home-portable Switch has led to a near-doubling of Nintendo's stock price to nine-year highs since the device's launch in March. Kimishima said more new titles were on the way. While Kirby and Yoshi are getting new games this year, those titles are unlikely to garner the kind of sales that Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild have.
