It's official! The Switch beat the lifetime sales of the Wii U in 2017

January 31, 2018 1 min read

With just 10 months on the market, the Nintendo Switch did what the Wii U couldn't: sell more than 14 million consoles. Nintendo released its sales data today and, as many people anticipated, the Switch did indeed outsell the Wii U globally before the end of 2017. The console-handheld hybrid moved 14.86 million units last year, pushing it past the lifetime 13.56 million sales of the Wii U. 52.57 million games were sold on the Switch in that time, giving it an attach rate of around three and a half.

The best selling game by far is Super Mario Odyssey. It sold more than nine million copies in its short time on the market. It joins six other first-party titles from 2017 that sold north of a million units on the Switch.
