Nintendo has had an incredible year and it keeps getting better as they have just revealed that more than 10 million Nintendo Switch units have been sold worldwide.

Nintendo announced that it reached the milestone just nine months since the Switch went on sale worldwide. Nintendo has claimed, according to the report, that the projected sales for the first year could be to the tune of 16.7 million which would be more than 3 million units sold in the first year of Nintendo Wii.

However, despite this early promise, Nintendo is still some way short of the runaway success of the Nintendo Wii. If the Switch keeps up this pace, it'll eventually become the best-selling Nintendo console ever. Just one year ago, WiiU sales were abysmal, the value of stock in the company was falling fast, and the company was reporting a $49 million dollar loss.

The Nintendo Switch also attracts an on-the-go gaming base who might not always have time to sit at home on the couch and play.

Nintendo employees are focusing on addressing the increasing popularity of Switch by making sure that there are enough tablets to meet the consumers' need. Given that we now know that other exclusive first-party titles like the Bayonetta games, Kirby: Star Allies, and a new Yoshi game are gearing up to drop soon, only means that much more buzz will surround the device.

After a dismal few years where it was overshadowed by Microsoft and Sony, the pioneering Japanese video game company has struck gold with its Nintendo Switch, sales figures released Tuesday reveal. These include the award winning titles The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, and Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle.
