Nintendo Envision Over 20 Million Switch Sales in FY 2018

Nintendo Envision Over 20 Million Switch Sales in FY 2018

As with most consoles, the Nintendo Switch is heavily locked down so that only approved software can run on the system. Considering that the Switch is already doing something no other console now does (namely, being both a living room console, and a competent hand-held device), this statement is certainly going to stir up some excitement for the future capabilities of the Switch.

Nintendo is a Switch-selling machine, and it doesn't look like the company will be slowing down at any point next fiscal year. Until March 2018, the firm plans to sell 14 million units. In the previous generation, we saw the release of Super Mario 3D Land for Nintendo 3DS and Super Mario 3D World for Nintendo Wii U. Both of these were excellent games, but the resources of Nintendo had to be split across both projects. As interesting as the Switch's ability to morph from console to portable on the fly may be, it's hard to imagine the system putting up those sales numbers without at least one, if not both, of those titles coming out during its first eight months. We are proud to award Nintendo with the titles of Shacknews Best Developer and Publisher of the Year.

This is good news for people bored of gaming gems like Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

It isn't just about Mario and Zelda.

In a similar fashion, it is only recently that Overcooked: Special Edition for the Nintendo Switch is getting a physical release on Amazon despite being on the eShop for many months now, but it is routine for developers to deliver an all-in-one edition of their game when they release on a platform months after release.

"I think there are lots of models that seem to be working", Trepanier said. New Metroid Prime and Pokémon games are also in the works.
