Nintendo Switch Outsells Wii U

With the public sharing of their 2017 financial briefing, Nintendo has confirmed that the Switch has already surpassed lifetime Wii U console sales.

Since its launch in March 2017 the Switch has sold 14.9 million units, while the Wii U only sold 13.6 million units from its launch in 2012 until it was discontinued in 2017.

The Army said that two helicopters, carrying four rescue personnel, are undertaking the rescue operation. In June 2017 a Spanish man and an Argentinian perished in an avalanche while trying to scale its peak.

Nintendo's data includes sales for those exclusives, with Super Mario Odyssey quickly becoming the platform's top-seller with nine million units shifted in a little over two months since launch.

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. The strong sales of the console have led to Nintendo's biggest money-making quarter since 2009, with profits of over $1 billion.

Download sales for Nintendo Switch helped push total download sales up to 43.1 billion yen (87% increase on a year-on-year basis). Earlier in January the company announced Kirby Star Allies, a port of Wii U title Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze and Mario Tennis Aces for release during the first few months of the year. However, it's important to remember that not all of that revenue comes from the Nintendo Switch. Considering that as the install base continues to grow every month the rate at which new games are purchased should also quicken, it may happen even sooner than that.
