  • Switch Overtakes PS2's First year Sales Record in Japan

After selling 10 million Switches and almost on the way to selling 14 million units within the console's first year on store shelves, Nintendo is looking to sell 20 million units in the next Japanese fiscal year.

Online retailer Amazon recently added listings for eighteen Nintendo Switch games to their site, the price points of which range from $59.99 to $99.99.

Nintendo did a lot right in 2017.

"That being said, when we were first presented with the Switch concept and some of the key games coming for it, I think a lot of folks who have been in the industry for a while, we all kind of felt, 'Oh, we've got a victor here'".

The hackers Plutoo, Derrek, and Naehrwert, at the 34C3 hacking conference held in Germany, have indeed confirmed that the Homebrew Launcher for Switch will soon be available and therefore on the hybrid console of Nintendo it will be possible to use unofficial apps. Nintendo Switch is both a Nintendo handheld and console that can be docked and this allows for the company to pool their development resources, The result is a game like Super Mario Odyssey being able to release in the launch year of the Nintendo Switch. "As a publisher, salesperson, marketer and representative of Nintendo, it's a once-in-a-career kind of year". And when you have a platform that is in the hands of kids and families then it opens up new opportunities for any game developers to access new markets.

It isn't just about Mario and Zelda. The second video game in the list also belongs to Nintendo - Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. This decision lead to one of my favorite new characters of the year, Rabbid Peach.

Lower down the best-seller list, we see games like Destiny 2 and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, but several more Nintendo Switch games had strong sales figures as well.
