Nintendo had a brilliant year with its new console, Nintendo Switch, which sold over 10 million units worldwide during 2017, whose 4,8 million in US alone. Now the Japanese hardware house has broken another record, and Nintendo Switch is the fastest-selling home console in US history.

The whole Nintendo line up for the Switch is also performing very well:  Super Mario Odyssey has been launched at the end of October, but it already sold over 2.88 million copies;  The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Switch’s big launch game sold over 2.60 million copies;  Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sold around 2.4 million copies.

The company increased production to meet the strong demand, and in March 2018 Nintendo Switch will already top lifetime sales of Wii U worldwide. Nintendo stock benefits from the Switch phenomena and it’s now sitting on level we haven’t seen since 2008, after a crisis that seriously damaged the investors confidence toward the company.
