The Nintendo Switch will surpass Wii U sales in double quick time
31 October, 2017, 01:27 | Author: Janis Wilson
To put that number into perspective, Wii U sales still have not topped 14 million units. Initially the company had expected around 10 million consoles to be sold by the end of the financial year but they are now forecasting sales of around 14 million units instead. As for hardware sales, Nintendo says it will sell 55.46 million Switch games by March 2018, a big increase from the previous forecast of 40.5 million game sales.
The signs are already promising. If that holds, it means that the Switch will have outpaced the Wii U's lifetime sales within its first year.
The Switch has now sold 7.63m units. According to Reuters, Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima said the company is manufacturing more consoles. The peripheral that allowed players to use the GameCube controller with the Nintendo Wii U was suddenly compatible with the Nintendo Switch, and we never would have known about it if a few gamers didn't think about trying it out. Nintendo admitted it underestimated the level of demand for the Switch, which was in short supply for many months following its retail release in March.
Nintendo revealed the top two games sold for the Switch:The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe at 4.7 million and 4.4 million respectively. "We've boosted Switch production to meet strong demand as it was hard for customers to buy the consoles at retail stores", he said (as quoted by Reuters). As the holidays draw closer, Nintendo wants to ensure folks who want a Switch can purchase one. Because of these sales numbers, Nintendo has updated its sales forecast for Switch.
But Nintendo appears to have learned from that experience as it prepares to roll out a mobile version of another popular game, "Animal Crossing".
