Nintendo Switch may need just one year to beat Wii U

Nintendo Switch To Outsell Wii U By March 2018

Because of these sales numbers, Nintendo has updated its sales forecast for Switch.

Once beaten down by the rise of mobile games, the Kyoto-based company now expects to quadruple its group operating profit to 120 billion yen for the financial year ending March 2018. Revenue is now forecast at 960 billion yen, up from 750 billion yen.

The Switch's early success has fueled hopes for strong earnings in the coming years, as solid demand for new consoles is widely regarded as a way to strong sales of high-margin game software over several years.

In addition to selling over 7.63 million consoles, Nintendo have also revealed that 27.48 million Switch games have been sold.

The Switch is running circles around the Wii U.

Sony's PlayStation 4 debuted in North America on November 15, 2013, internationally on November 29, and in Japan on February 22, 2014, and sold 7 million units of 7.5 million the company had shipped by April 2014, five and a half months into its lifecycle. It's just up to Nintendo to make enough Switch units available in the next two months.

Last week's release of Super Mario Odyssey, which bettered the week one performance of Breath of the Wild in the United Kingdom, should propel those numbers even further.

The Nintendo Switch is on track to be more successful than its predecessor console, the Wii U, by leaps and bounds.

Rocket League is making its way to the Nintendo Switch, finally, later this month, just announced today.

Between April and September, Nintendo launched several titles for Switch such as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and popular title Splatoon2. Now, with the launch of Super Mario Odyssey on Friday, that number has increased to 200.

Given the fact that the holiday season in Europe and United States have always been a life saver for gizmos it is safe to assume that the Switch won't see a decline in numbers for the last quarter of 2017.
