  • Nintendo Switch Just Outsold Gamecube's Lifetime Sales

In its new earnings report, Nintendo also revealed that over five million Switch consoles have been sold in the past sixth months, marking a slight increase in sales from the same period a year ago. Tied at 2.1 million are ARMS, the youngest IP on the list, and Kirby Star Allies; another title released earlier this year, maintaining steady numbers as it's close to having doubled its sales from August. The outcome fell short of analysts' estimates but qualified as the company's best quarterly result in eight years.

For the holidays, the Switch is sure to enjoy a huge boost in sales thanks to the game releases Nintendo has planned.

Almost 23 million Nintendo Switch have been sold since it's launch.

Nintendo revealed that its Nintendo Switch console has sold 22.86 million units worldwide as of September 30.

Nintendo's operating profit for the second quarter was up about 30 percent, to $274 million.

Nintendo sold 24.2 million software units during the quarter, up from 13.9 million a year ago as a lack of big first-party titles was offset by popular titles from outside publishers.

The five-year-old PlayStation 4 is delivering more energy - and profit growth - for Sony's business, when compared with Nintendo's much-newer Switch.

"From the beginning we decided on a target that would be challenging to reach, not easy", Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa said after the results.

"Still, remakes and indie titles aren't compelling enough for most people to buy a new console". However, considering the game's continued presence on the NPD charts, Nintendo may support the game more.

Nintendo hasn't announced a new Mario Kart for the Switch, but it is working on one for smartphones. This makes it the youngest game on the list, and with 2.16 million sold since its release late June it's another strong showing for the company's mascot.
