Nintendo Sells 15 Million Switch Consoles in First Year

Nintendo's Switch Puts Profits Back on Course to Wii-Era Levels

Here are the nine best selling games on Switch. This makes Furukawa only the sixth president in Nintendo history. Nintendo announced the management changes alongside earnings results Thursday. The company's most successful hardware endeavor was the Wii, which sold just over 100 million units. The Mario brand continues to sell like hot cakes, which is apparent considering that they have two Mario-themed games sitting near the 10-million-units-sold mark. The company also stated it expects to sell 4 million 3DS consoles in the same time period. In addition, Nintendo revealed that digital sales for the Switch proved 'very good, ' while pint-sized retro console SNES Classic 'proved to be a hit in every region'. This is pretty solid considering the brand and the newness of the game, which launched in March to mostly positive reviews. Super Mario Odyssey sold 10.41 million units, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe: sold 9.22 million units, and Splatoon 2 sold 6.02 million units. That raises the stakes for products like Nintendo Labo, cardboard accessories that the company sees as key to broadening the Switch's appeal beyond initial adopters.

Nintendo estimated profit to reach 225 billion yen ($2.06 billion) from 177.56 billion yen a year prior. Then in September, we will begin offering the Nintendo Switch Online paid service to expand the online functionality of Nintendo Switch. The only thing that might slow down its profitability in the future is the occurrence of pirated games for that console.
