The Nintendo Switch has sold 10 million units worldwide, as of December 12, 2017. The other has to be the impressive catalogue of software that was published within the system's first nine months on the market. "The response from fans has been great, and we're doing our very best to satisfy demand during the holiday shopping season".
The Switch has clearly exceeded Nintendo's wildest expectations, and today the consolemaker confirmed that notion with a few sales numbers.
For starters, the Switch is a simple concept that's well executed.
So, why has the Nintendo Switch been a success?
First, it can let the player either play games on it as a handheld like a Game Boy Advance. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was released for the Nintendo Switch on April 28. Another benefit was that, unlike Nintendo's more recent consoles, The Switch came bundled with two controllers, allowing friends and family to play together immediately. It should become easier to find for the holiday season thanks to increased production, but still, getting a Switch has been fairly hard since it came out.
Nintendo also has seen good support for the Switch from big game publishers like EA and Ubisoft, as well as independent developers, he added.
The Switch's most popular game, "Super Mario Odyssey", sold 2 million units in its first three days, making it the fastest-selling title in the history of Mario's long and illustrious career.
Here's Mario with a small portion of Nintendo's fortune.
In regards to the company's remarks on Switch games that were previously unavailable on the console, fans could also see the likes of Devil May Cry or even Dino Crisis grace the machine in the near future.
