Nintendo Switch has passed the GameCube in lifetime sales

Nintendo Switch IMG Beach

Nintendo has sold more Switch consoles in 15 months than it did GameCubes over that device's entire lifetime. The Switch has sold 22.86 million units up to September 30th 2018, which pushes it above the Gamecube's lifetime sales of 21.74 million units.

"Sales of other popular titles that were released during previous fiscal years and titles released by other software publishers continued to grow, bringing the total number of million-seller titles during this period to nine", Nintendo said.

Nintendo is hoping to sell 20 million Switch units in this financial year, and has so far sold 5.07 million between April and September.

Nintendo just released their six month earnings results in Japan and the numbers from the Big N continue to impress. "Reaching their Switch target really depends on the holiday quarter, especially the new Super Smash Bros. game". And Nintendo is expecting another huge holiday quarter as well. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, a game that originally released on Wii U, has sold 1.67 million units. Analysts believe this is because of the lack of big third-party titles like Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Red Dead Redemption 2 (which achieved the second biggest opening three days in the history of entertainment after GTA V), too many older ports, and not enough big first party efforts. First up, we have Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee and Let's Go, Pikachu! on November 16, which is followed on December 7 by the system seller that is Super Smash Bros.

Nintendo hasn't announced a new Mario Kart for the Switch, but it is working on one for smartphones.

The Kyoto-based game giant reported net profit for the 6 months to September of 64.6 billion yen ($574 million) on sales of 388.9 billion yen, which were up 4.0%.
