The Switch has just outsold the Wii U

The Best Video Game Consoles of All Time

The Wii U still leads the Nintendo Switch in software sales, as the Wii U has sold 101.65 million software units compared to the Nintendo Switch's 52.57 million software units. In less than a year.

From the Switch's launch in early March 2017 through the end of September, Nintendo sold 7.63 million units of Switch hardware worldwide. Talking about Wii U, it was shipped around 13.56 million units.

Nintendo has sold 14.86 million Switch units so far, the Japanese firm revealed in its nine months earnings report released today.

Other million-sellers for the Switch include Splatoon 2 (4.91 million), 1-2-Switch (1.88 million), Arms (1.61 million), and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (1.06 million). Once again, it's a remarkable turnaround for Nintendo, and is just one of several highlights from their latest financial report. The Nintendo Switch got a boost from the holiday season helped by big name games such as "Super Mario Odyssey" and "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe".

It's interesting to note that the Nintendo Switch in its short span has already outsold the doomed Wii U and it just goes to show that Nintendo gamble with hybrid couch/portable gaming has worked out. It is expected Switch sales could be able to reach 20 million this year.

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 success of Nintendo 3DS, not to mention the spoils of the Wii's success, kept the company afloat as it eased off development for Wii U in favour of its new console.

It's safe to say that the console has been a welcome surprise, even for Nintendo. On the other hand, Nintendo may have a hard time equaling its impressive 2017 game release calendar in 2018.

Nintendo also partly released the revenue for titles like Super Mario Run and Fire Emblem.
