Nintendo Switch hits 10m sales in nine months
Nintendo has now sold more than 10m Switch consoles worldwide in just nine months.
It's an impressive total, and one which will only rise higher as the Christmas sales season continues.
For comparison, Wii U sold just 13.56m in five years - although that figure shows how much of a flop the Switch's predecessor was. The original Wii sold more than 100m - there's still a long way to go for Switch to hit that.
But few could argue Nintendo Switch hasn't had a stellar first year, thanks largely to a line-up which has contained first-party greats such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey and Splatoon 2.
Switch has also found a home as a great showcase for indie titles, such as Stardew Valley, Golf Story and Rocket League.

Looking to the future, 2018 will bring new Kirby and Yoshi games, Bayonetta 2... and just maybe, finally, that new Pokémon game.
