"Nintendo Switch hardware continued to be quite popular, reaching 5.07 million units sold" in the April-September period, it said. In total, the device has seen almost 1,000 releases so far this year, up from about 400 in 2017, according to fan site Perfectly Nintendo. Nintendo was also proud to announce that Mario Tennis Aces has sold 2.16 million copies since launch.
Despite that, the Wall Street Journal reports that Nintendo chief executive Shuntaro Furukawa said during a press conference that the Switch's momentum is in line with what the company expected and that it still believes it can hit its goal of 20 million Switch sold during this fiscal year. Those strong sales continue and the latest victim is Nintendo's sixth-generation games console, the GameCube. First up, we have Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee and Let's Go, Pikachu! on November 16, which is followed on December 7 by the system seller that is Super Smash Bros. "The holiday season battle begins now".
