JAPANESE GAMING OUTFIT Nintendo has revealed that its eight-month-old Switch console has already outsold its Wii U predecessor.

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.

According to Nintendo, Super Mario Odyssey sold 9.07 million copies since its October launch - which is more than some major franchises managed to sell in 2017.

It is an absolutely remarkable goal achieved by Nintendo Switch, reached within just nine months of presence on the market.

That overtakes the Wii U's lifetime hardware sales total of 13.56 million between its November 17, 2012 launch and when it was discontinued on January 31, 2017.

The Nintendo Switch hits a new milestone as it approaches 15 million units sold worldwide since it's 3 March launch. The strong sales of the console have led to Nintendo's biggest money-making quarter since 2009, with profits of over $1 billion. With third-party game developers not expected to release blockbuster titles for the Switch until at least 2019, 2018 could bring a drop off in sales.

Authorities continued questioning the people and a lot of them couldn't explain where the four tons of oranges had come from. Theft of oranges is not uncommon in Spain, where farmers have even reportedly hired vigilantes to protect their orchards.

Nintendo released its fiscal Q3 earnings yesterday and blew past analyst expectations on both revenue and profit.

Nintendo's latest device known as the Switch is flaunting its ability to move mad units quickly, which as of 2017 the Switch sold 14.86 million units.

According to Gamespot, 12.13 million Switches were sold from its debut in March through the end of past year, with 2.74 million sold during the launch month alone.

There is also Nintendo Labo, the company's unconventional take of peripherals, set for release in April.

As you might imagine, the success of the Switch has translated into a ton of cash for Nintendo.
