Nintendo Switch Sales to Catch Up with Wii During Holiday Season

The Nintendo Switch has left the Wii U in the dust, but what about the Wii?

Nintendo launched the Switch in March. This was unusual as both the Wii and Wii U were released during the Holiday shopping season. The Nintendo Switch has though already beaten the Wii U sales for the same time frame. It's still though behind the Nintendo Wii sales.

Nintendo presented the above graph that shows the trajectory of the sales of the three consoles. "The above shows an overlay of sell-through figures together with Wii and Wii U data for the first years after release. While Wii and Wii U were released during the holiday season, it’s important to note that the Nintendo Switch launch was timed completely differently, in March. It now looks like holiday season sales for Nintendo Switch could catch up to the Wii figures," Nintendo stated.

It sounds like that the goal of Nintendo is to beat the Wii success with the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo sold 101.63m. The Nintendo Switch has been sold 7.63 million times since March. There is still a very long way to go for the Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo cautioned again that there will not be enough Switch units available for the Holiday season. The company has raised the Switch hardware sales projections for this fiscal year from 10 to 14 million units.

The Nintendo Switch is in stock at many online retailers at this time.
