According to Nintendo's internal tracking, they've sold 14.86 million Switch consoles as of December 31.

This means that in just 10 months it has outsold its disappointing predecessor, the Wii U, which was launched in 2012 and took five years to sell 13.5m consoles before being scrapped as a commercial failure last year.

The company of 116.50 billion yen (£755m, $1.07 billion), up from 32.26 billion yen a year ago.

After the Switch worldwide release as of past year, the device has accrued a number of sold units of 14.86 million as of December 31st, 2017.

Sensex has gained 30% since last Budget on retail push
The index remained in the negative zone for the major part of the session and lost 68.71 points, or 0.19% to finish at 35,965.02. Rural economy will be the key in the budget but infrastructure development and reforms are also likely to be highlighted.

Given that Super Mario Odyssey was able to move 9.07 million units and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was able to sell 6.70 million units within2017 on one device, shows that claims by developers who doubt single-player games should reconsider their stance on said games.

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). Nintendo has increased its sales forecast by 1 million.

The Switch is not only a successor to the Wii U. If the price comes down, it could replace the hugely popular 3DS as Nintendo's primary handheld console. But, of particular noteworthiness is the performance of Super Mario Odyssey. It's good to see that Nintendo is keeping its promise that a unified system would bring better and quicker software development but there's more to it than games alone. Can Switch be expected to sell more than Wii?

Pokemon games are typically among the best-selling titles for Nintendo's consoles, but a Pokemon adventure for the Switch has yet to be released.
