A quarterly record of 9.41 million Switch machines were sold between October and December last year, marking a 30 percent year-over-year increase.
The Nintendo Switch has been doing great on the market since its release, but it seems like Nintendo isn't going to rest on its laurels, as there are big things in store for the console.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was the best-selling game on Amazon a year ago and was the fastest-selling Nintendo game ever in Europe just a week and a half after launch. Since the Switch is a hybrid console that's fairly easily portable, it makes sense that the company would launch new models at some point, right?
In their latest quarterly results they've downgraded their target to just 17 million, which they'll easily meet because they're now on 14.49 million. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate sold 12.08 million units.

Is there a video game out there that's more fun than Mario Kart?
The Switch's game sales have been equally strong. The company has been loath to discuss its plans for Mario Kart Tour and there's been no insight into what the game will look like, how it operates, and more.
Many questioned why Nintendo set such a high hardware goal in the first place, but at least they've taken their knocks now and won't upset investors when it gets to the full year results in April. Based on corroborating reports from several translators, the correct interpretation appears to be that Nintendo is bringing new features or services to the existing Nintendo Switch Online platform.
