    1. Nintendo earned 3 billion dollars in this year thanks to the Switch and that’s without counting the sales of Zelda, Splatoon and the Mario games.

    2. Now we need a restoration of the Mario Party franchise and the Paper Mario franchise. Also we need more Metroid games and a 3D DK with the DK crew.

      1. Second reply to: @cronotose (the first reply is on the bottom by the way). They won’t take away the 2D Donkey Kong just because a new 3D DK got released.

      2. ” They won’t take away the 2D Donkey Kong just because a new 3D DK got released.”

        Not sure why you say that with confidence. It was 8 years after Super Mario 64 before they gave us another 2D Mario,and they still haven’t put serious effort into one now at 21 years. While I certainly agree with you that 2D and 3D can coexist, I don’t think Nintendo feels this way. In my opinion, they’ve been trying to find a way to get the 3D games to swallow the 2D audience ever since the Nintendo 64 so they can stop making the 2D games which they clearly don’t have much interest in designing.

  1. Well how about that ……the Switch went from being DOA to selling 15 million…..before it’s fiscal year. Somewhere the haters are on suicide watch

  2. Weird numbers. As far as I’m informed the PS4 sold more units this year and the Switch reached 3.3 million units sold in japan this xmas, which is actually accounting for 25% of all Switch purchases. 3.3 million multiplied with four equals 13,2 million consoles sold.

  3. The numbers are weird.The Switch is about 11 million units sold globally and I get the feeling that this is about US only.What gives?

    1. It’s holiday season…. The 10m sales, if I remember right, only took into account November sales and early December days.
      I think if you add the Christmas and New Year sales, it should be in line with the numbers you are seeing now… Though I also think it’s an estimate but the Switch shouldn’t be too far off from this at this point.

  4. Quick! Someone get Nintendo on the phone to confirm the Switch sold 15m units in America alone! STAT!!!

  5. Reply to: @cronotose. I hope they give us both 2D and 3D Donkey Kong. I will like a 2D that surpass Country 2 and a 3D because it has been almost 20 years since DK 64. I think both can coexist like 3D and 2D Mario but yes you’re right. We a decent 2D Mario that rivals Bros 3 and World (I had reply here because there was no reply button in your reply to me).

  6. The top 2 are combining stats though… I wonder what it would look like if it were single items ratios.
    and why the hell are people buying the Apple Watch?? Were they in the clearance section all holiday??

  7. I hope people realize that this is a guesstimation from an analyst on what he believes these companies will sell (worldwide) for the year of 2017. Yes the article is from USA today, but the Analyst has “inside” information from a market research group. It doesnt mean that Nintendo sold 15mil already.

    1. I was about to say. Even I was going to blow a gasket if this was true right now.

  8. Good Lord 15 million? They announced the 10 million milestone not long ago ahah. This is great news since it means third-party producers will surely become interested in the platform.
