In the midst of selling more than 14.8 million Nintendo Switch units since its March debut, the Switch has also outsold the company’s previous Wii U console’s lifetime sales. The Wii U sold 13.56 million units at the end of its lifespan, making it the worst selling Nintendo console outside of the short-lived Virtual Boy.
Despite being sold only recently in October, Super Mario Odyssey has become the best-selling game for the console with more than 9 million units moved, followed closely by Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with over 7 million. Titles sold for the Nintendo Switch, despite it being a 10-month-old console, has already totaled half the number of software sold for the Wii U at 52 million titles. Upcoming titles for the Nintendo Switch include remastered versions of both Bayonetta titles, as well as Dark Souls Remastered.
