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.

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.
