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.

In the similar list, Super Mario Odyssey of Nintendo is positioned on 3rd place after a few gift cards of PlayStation. Confirmed in the company's recent quarterly earnings report, The Big N has seen a massive sales spike that only continued for months after launch.

"The Nintendo 3DS characteristics, price points, and play styles differ from Nintendo Switch, and we intend to continue the Nintendo 3DS business separately and in parallel", Nintendo CEO Tatsumi Kimishima said during the company's financial results briefing (via Gematsu). The Wii U was not.

Brainseed Factory's charming and rather imaginative puzzle-platformer Typoman is making its way onto Nintendo Switch in the form of its later-released Revised edition. In addition to this, Splatoon 2 managed to reach 4.9 million units in the market.

Nintendo offers It's a 360 degree experience as now gamers can practically play the games anywhere they want.

In less than a year, Nintendo has sold 14 million Switches.

"To promote longer gameplay for individual software titles, we plan to implement even more downloadable content and events that build excitement for games".

"Super Mario Run" - the simplified version of Mario that Nintendo created for mobile devices - has been around for over a year now, and it's still being widely played.

Nintendo has announced a five-game schedule for the next four months, with one other title dangled over 2018 as a whole. Although Switch players have had no problem going online and engaging with other players worldwide, the console's online infrastructure is still missing key features, especially its monthly subscription plan thanks to a delay.

Nintendo's star game designer Shigeru Miyamoto told reporters Thursday the script is mostly finished.
