Nintendo Switch Sales Hit The 10 Million Mark In Only 9 Months

Nintendo Switch Sales Hit The 10 Million Mark In Only 9 Months

It'll be interesting to see what will come of this situation regarding the Switch when holiday season kicks into full force and when 2018 and all of its games roll out?

So far it's looking good, with sales continuing at a steady pace, word of mouth generating constant buzz, and third party developers taking more note of Nintendo's handheld/home console hybrid.

The fastest blockbuster becoming gaming platform which was also one of the most wanted during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Nintendo Switch, has just surpassed 10 million sells worldwide.

Polish website FilmWeb has got in touch with ConQuest Entertainment, Nintendo's Polish distributor, which confirmed that both Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 will run at 720p, 60 FPS Switch, regardless of the console's mode. The only consoles to outsell the Switch in their first 10 months, according to Ars Technica are PlayStations 2 and 4 and the Nintendo Wii. The highly anticipated, and well-reviewed, Super Mario Odyssey joined the Switch catalog in October.

The Switch has found itself becoming the new favorite destination for indie titles too.

The Switch comes with a docking station, two Joy-Con controllers, and a Joy-Con Grip to make a more traditional controller.

Switch has also found a home as a great showcase for indie titles, such as Stardew Valley, Golf Story and Rocket League.

Large scale 3rd party offerings are finding their way back to Nintendo fans as well. Traditionally new video game systems were released to coincide with the holiday shopping season.

The Switch's sudden success can be attributed to a number of factors.

In October, Nintendo increased Switch shipment projections for the year ending March 2018, pushing the estimate up from 10 million to 14 million units.
