Nintendo has reported its most profitable quarter in nearly a decade as global sales of its new Switch console soared in the runup to Christmas. Half of the Nintendo Switch's sales probably came when the system launched and a few months that followed, and most likely a lot of units were sold once Mario Odyssey released, and there was even a bundle with Odyssey packaged in.
After the Switch worldwide release as of a year ago, the device has accrued a number of sold units of 14.86 million as of December 31st, 2017.
The company is targeting Switch sales of nearly 17m by the end of March and 20m by the end of its next financial year in March 2019. This was helped out by its line up of exclusive games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey, the latter of which moved 9.07 million units of 2017.
"Switch sales during the holiday season were stronger than expected in Japan, the United States and Europe", Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima said at an earnings briefing.
