We'll keep you informed on its development process, but don't be surprised if this game makes a smooth getaway when it arrives early next year.

Today Nintendo announced that its new Switch console sold through ten million units to consumers, reaching an important milestones roughly nine months after its release.

The announcement comes less than two months after Nintendo increased its fiscal-year projection, ending March 31, 2018, from 10 million to 14 million units sold. Selling over 10 million units in that time is quite an impressive feat and it has been helped with the great library that continues to develop on the Switch. "The pace is one of the fastest in our own history and in gaming history".

To play it, gamers insert a slim tablet into a handheld device that has controllers on each side. While this is nice for portable mode, since it's the screen's native resolution, this isn't as nice for docked mode. And here we are in the midst of said holiday sales and Switches are still flying off of shelves. While first-party exclusives are a big deal, many other developers are also supporting the console with third-party titles.

The Switch still has a long way to go, though, if it wants to challenge Nintendo's best-selling home console, the Wii; which sold more than 100 million units over its lifetime. It is a seamless process and no doubt one of the reasons why the Switch is so popular.

"The Switch is in a position to become the second console in households", McNealy said.

The video game company has wholly disregarded the new consoles that their longtime business rivals, Sony and Microsoft, released and continued to focus on the Nintendo Switch. That is in addition to the first party lineup that has new and familiar franchises from Snipperclips and ARMS to Mario Kart, Splatoon, Mario, Zelda and more.
