The Nintendo Switch Has Now Surpassed The Wii U's Lifetime Sales

As yet another attempt to diversify, Nintendo said this month it would launch in April "Labo" a set of LEGO-style accessories for the Switch console that kids can build themselves on cardboard sheets. This is a ridiculous amount of copies considering the Nintendo Switch has only sold 14 million units. According to the latest numbers shared by Nintendo, Super Mario Odessey sales now stand at 9.07 million units worldwide.

According to the financial report, in 2017 eight Switch games shifted a million units or more.

The console has confounded experts with its success despite lacking the power of Microsoft's Xbox One and Sony's PlayStation 4, and despite its inability to stream movies or browse the web.

KitGuru Says: In fact, it's hard to believe that the console has experienced such huge success in comparison to its predecessor even without these core features we've come to expect from a modern day console.

One of the bestselling consoles of all time, the Wii was launched in November 2006, selling 20m consoles in its first year and exceeding 100m over its lifetime. The US remains Nintendo Switch's biggest market, where it sold 5.94 million units of the Switch console.

Sales of Nintendo Switch have surpassed those of the company's previous console, Wii U, in just nine months. It also raised its operating profit outlook to $1.5 billion from $1.1 billion for the fiscal year ending March. That will also mean an increase in game revenue, as Nintendo cranks up the franchise releases for its console. If we look at the data provided by Nintendo, first-party sales are impressive.

"The momentum for Switch over the last 10 months has been stronger than that of the Wii", Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima said on Wednesday.
