Below are the latest hardware sales out of Japan and the Switch has once again DOMINATED overseas. The latest offering from Nintendo almost moved 165K in units and will no doubt ride this wave until the end of the year.
It has been announced that the Nintendo Switch has now sold over 10 million units worldwide. This monumental success is ahead of the big Christmas rush and will likely outsell the Wii U’s entire lifespan in a matter of months. The Nintendo Switch first hit the market earlier this year and is home to some of the best games ever released. The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild took home numerous “Game of The Year” awards and Super Mario Odyssey has become the highest rated game of all time.
This is HUGE news for Nintendo and we cannot wait to see what the company has in store for 2018. Congrats Nintendo.

Nintendo has uploaded a nifty little Christmas showcase video celebrating all things Nintendo Switch. I wish Nintendo decided to actually have this running in a TV advertisement as I think it conveys the system and its exclusives perfectly. Check out the 30 second spot and let us know what you think.

TIME has named Nintendo’s latest console as their top best gadget for 2017. The Nintendo Switch topped the likes of XBOX One, iPhone X and Fidget Spinners. The list showed a wide array of nifty gadgets and we love the fact that the Nintendo Switch was represented. Big congrats to Nintendo!
