In less than a year.

The Nintendo Switch launched in March 2017 and reached this milestone so quickly by doing something Nintendo was never able to do with the Wii U: consistently releasing new, high-quality first-party games.

After launching in March last year, Nintendo has sold 14.86 million Switch units, almost 900,000 ahead of its 2017 target with three months left of its financial year.

Waymo orders 1000s of Pacificas for driverless taxis

Nintendo reported earnings for its fiscal third quarter of 2017 on Wednesday that beat market expectations, with the gaming giant also upping the sales forecast for its flagship Switch console. Second place goes to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with 7.33 million copies sold and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild comes in at third with 6.7 million. Led by Super Mario Odyssey, Nintendo Switch software sales have already surpassed more than half of the Wii U's lifetime game sales.

Nintendo's newest game console has outsold its predecessor in just ten months. It now expects group operating profit to more than quintuple to 160 billion yen, up from its previous outlook of 120 billion yen.

The forecast is one million higher than the one shared three months ago, which means that the console sold better than expected during the Holidays.

On a table listing upcoming releases for primary Nintendo products, the untitled Pokemon Switch title is still scheduled for a "2018 or later" release. If Nintendo continues at the same pace, it would soon topple Microsoft's console. Kimishima said more new titles were on the way. What kind of games do you think we'll see before the year is over?
