Nintendo has announced that after being on sale for less than a year, worldwide Switch console sales have surpassed those of the Wii U's entire lifecycle.

The company has sold 14.86 million Switch units worldwide since its release in March 2017 through the end of 2017, compared to 13.56 million units for the Wii U over more than four years.

On the software side, Nintendo is also proud of the fact that Super Mario Odyssey has sold over nine million copies, Mario Kart Deluxe over seven million, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild at 6.7 million.
