Nintendo Switch To Outsell Wii U By March 2018

Switch GameCube controller support an accident: Nintendo

With these new projections, and considering Wii U production ended globally earlier this year, it's likely Switch will outsell its predecessor during its first year on the market.

Nintendo now forecasts sales of 50 million Switch games for the year, up from its previous estimate of 35 million.

The signs are already promising.

Nintendo Switch owners will soon be able to join the fast-paced, goal-scoring action of Rocket League when the game finally released on the console in November. Unsurprisingly, "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild [VIDEO]" topped the table, with 4.7 million copies sold. Key to that may be overcoming whatever issue it is that is constraining supply on Nintendo's side. But the Switch has also made a name for itself in how indie-friendly it is, making itself home to a plethora of games from indie developers ranging from the most high profile to smaller titles. But after that, Nintendo's mobile games business "will become a force to reckon with".

If you own the Fighter Pack 2 and Ultimate Pack , you will be able to play him earlier on November 14th, 2017. Fighter Pack 2 is available to purchase from either the PlayStation Store or Microsoft Store for $19.99.

Nintendo's Switch has done better than just about anybody could have predicted - especially considering how dismally the Wii U performed. Since then, the Nintendo Switch has launched suddenly, everything is heading back in the right direction. "We've boosted Switch production to meet strong demand as it was hard for customers to buy the consoles at retail stores", said the President.

Nintendo surprised everybody by quietly adding GameCube controller support to the Nintendo Switch, and apparently, that includes Nintendo itself. Nintendo also boosted its software sales forecast, which it now believes will total 50 million units, up from its previous forecast of 35 million.

Between April and September, Nintendo launched several titles for Switch such as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and popular title Splatoon2. Kimishima remains somewhat coy on the strategy Nintendo will adopt for the Switch for the next fiscal year and beyond.
