Money Machine: The Switch Is Bringing In The Dough For Nintendo

With its first year under the belt, Nintendo's Switch got off to a very strong start and became the fastest selling console in the business's history.

But Nintendo doesn't expect the success to stop here.

They have seen their largest yearly profits since 2010.

Nintendo recorded shipments (to retail) of 15.05 million Switches for fiscal 2017, for a total of 17.79m shipped life to date. If history is any indication, it'll take place on the evening of Monday, June 11, following Ubisoft that afternoon.

What do you think Nintendo needs to do to sell 20 million consoles in 2018? Each of these scored incredibly highly with critics.

Sony, a rival to Nintendo in the video game market, announces its full-year results on Friday.

"Super Mario Odyssey" sold 10.41 million copies. In addition, at the end of the Splatoon competition, the Super Smash Bros Invitational 2018 will be held, where professional players and other guests will compete and test the long-awaited Nintendo game.

Up next on the list is Pokémon's highly anticipated debut on a home console. Though the company didn't give specifics, Nintendo says "a variety" of other titles will be available for fans to enjoy. These include the likes of "Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker" and "Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze". Fortunately for Nintendo, the Switch seems to have turned things around. The plans reveal that the company plans to make the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Switch the focal point of their presentation.

Despite not having a big stage presentation at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) for many years now, Nintendo has remained a big part of the show.

While Iwata was a public face of the company - often hosting Nintendo Direct streams and interviews with game developers - Kimishima worked away from the public eye. And smartphone games netted a 62 percent increase.
