The milestone is impressive, given the system launched just nine months ago in March. That number is still dwarfed by Nintendo's motion-controlled Wii, which sold over 100 million units over its lifespan.
For 2018, Nintendo Switch games on tap include Nintendo-published titles like "Kirby Star Allies", "Bayonetta", "Bayonetta 2" and a new game in the Yoshi franchise. One thing is for certain, despite the week launch lineup of games, Nintendo has managed to kick some serious ass adding a bunch of new and exciting games to their lineup since launch.
According to P.J. McNealy, chief executive at Digital World Research, the gaming industry was ripe for something fresh like the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo's main competitors, Sony and Microsoft, released their most recent game consoles - the PS4 and Xbox One - on November 15, 2013 and November 22, 2013 respectively.
The Nintendo Switch has undoubtedly been one of the success stories of the year.

Nintendo Switch sales hit 10 million worldwide
Reggie Fils-Aimé, Nintendo of America President, stated in the press release today that they have received a "great" response from the fans and that they will continue to try their best to meet the Holiday demands.
The Wii U only sold 13.56 million consoles in its entire lifetime.
On a brighter note, the Switch has seen extremely high attach rates, with more physical games being attached to console sales than during the Wii's launch and heyday - although that's probably partly because Wii Sports was bundled with every Wii sold. Fils-Aime said it's possible that the Switch will top the first-year sales of the Wii, if momentum remain strong through the holiday-shopping season.
