Switch expected to outsell Wii U within a year

200 Titles Now Available in Nintendo Switch eShop

In its latest investor report, the gaming giant confirmed the console has already sold 7.63 million units since it was released in March.

Nintendo's full-year earnings projections were upwardly revised, with the firm's sales now estimated at 960 billion yen compared with a previous projection of 750 billion yen, thanks to favorable currency moves and the popularity of its Swift console.

Speaking of games, all of the company's major first party exclusives have gone on to sell over 1 million copies.

The Wii U was not an abject failure per say, but it never quite captured the imagination of audiences in the way the Switch appears to. Software sales for the 3DS were also up, but not by as much, with Nintendo selling almost 8 million games.

Jose Mourinho set to seek replacement for Luke Shaw
The injured midfielder has become a key figure for Mourinho, but his contract expires at the end of the season and the extension clause has already been triggered.

Whichever way you look at it, Nintendo is having a fantastic year, and with demand so high every one of those 16 million+ Switch consoles will sell.

Net profit is forecast to sink 17% to 85 billion yen, as last fiscal year's result was inflated by the one-time capital gain from selling a majority stake in the Seattle Mariners, a US professional baseball team.

Nintendo now forecasts sales of 50 million Switch games for the year, up from its previous estimate of 35 million. Further, "Super Mario Odyssey" was released last week in Japan and overseas. According to NST.com, Hideki Yasuda, an analyst at Ace Research Institute in Tokyo said, "Switch is in excellent shape as sales of both hardware and software are growing steadily".

The Switch, on the other hand, has new titles released every one to two months for popular series. Since then, the Nintendo Switch has launched suddenly, everything is heading back in the right direction. Now, with the launch of Super Mario Odyssey on Friday, that number has increased to 200. Nintendo knows this. "The true power of the Switch would be tested during the upcoming holiday season", said Kimishima.
