It seems the Nintendo Switch is doing better than many expected. The Switch is a tremendous success for Nintendo: the console has beaten all expectations and sold 7.6 million units to date, and now they expect to sell 14 million units by April 2018. Wow!
That means the company expects the Switch to outsell the Wii U’s total lifetime sales in just one year, which is something no one had really anticipated.
Earlier today Nintendo revealed its quarterly earnings report, which also showed that all first party Switch games have sold over 1 million units.
Nintendo made $1.93 billion in revenue last quarter, which was way more than industry analysts expected.
As a result, Nintendo shares rose sharply, hitting $50 earlier today — the highest it’s been since the glory days of the Wii in the mid 2000s.
So can they keep momentum? Or will sales drop after their big title Mario Odyssey is now longer on people’s mind? Time will tell… They need First Party titles to survive, since they lack power again compared to competitors Sony Playstation and Microsoft Xbox One, just as with the Wii U.
