April 27, 2017 1 min read

Nintendo has said all along it is aiming for 10 million Switch sales in its first year. The company's fiscal earnings report for fiscal year 2016 revealed that it did more than a quarter of that in the console's launch month. Hoping to sell at least two million Switches in the initial month, Nintendo got that and then some, moving 2.74 million worldwide.

The Wii U ended its five-year life with 13.6 million sales, 670,000 of which coming between April 2016 and March 2017. The 3DS, meanwhile, churned out 7.27 million consoles for the year. Nintendo states Pokémon GO drove 3DS sales outside of Japan.
