Lifetime Switch sales have surpassed 17M units

Nintendo Shipped 17.79 Million Switch Units by March 31st 2018

We'd obviously expect a Mario title to be among the most popular for any Nintendo console, but it's important to remember that Odyssey has only been available since the end of October, meaning it's been selling like insane ever since launch. The combined sales of Switch consoles and related gaming titles has helped the Japanese gaming giant record a healthy US$1.6 billion profit for its fiscal year just ended. Nintendo generated 178 billion yen ($1.62 billion) in operating profit for the year.

Nintendo 3DS hardware sales remained solid even after the launch of Nintendo Switch, with sales during this fiscal year reaching 6.40 million units, the company said.

Nintendo has a new president: Shuntaro Furukawa, a veteran Nintendo employee who's just 46 years old.

What do you think Nintendo needs to do to sell 20 million consoles in 2018? On June 28, president of Nintendo Tatsumi Kimishima will be stepping down. Furukawa is known as a very intelligent person who is even able to speak fluent English.

"We will develop the company to its fullest", Furukawa said at a news conference (per Bloomberg). "He may be the ideal person to fill the communication gap that exists between Nintendo and investors".

Speaking of Mario, Super Mario Odyssey is now the best-selling game on the system, selling 10.41 million units.

The outlook compared with the 308.72 billion yen average of 21 analyst estimates in a survey by Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

Iwata, originally, was expected to be the person to guide Nintendo into its new future. The revenue increased 116 percent to 1.06 trillion yen ($9.66 billion). Kimishima was originally appointed the president of the company when its previous president of 14 years, the late Satoru Iwata, passed away in 2015.
