The Switch has surpassed 22M units in lifetime sales

Nintendo Switch Just Outsold Gamecube's Lifetime Sales

Nintendo has sold more Switch consoles in 15 months than it did GameCubes over that device's entire lifetime.

The company highlighted digital "sales of downloadable versions of packaged software and add-on content for Nintendo Switch showed especially good growth", of 71.7% year-over-year.

Switch sales have also already passed lifetime sales of the Wii U, which maxed out at 13.56 million units.

In its new earnings report, Nintendo also revealed that over five million Switch consoles have been sold in the past sixth months, marking a slight increase in sales from the same period previous year. Nintendo believes it can achieve its high target with the upcoming Pokemon and Super Smash Bros, so it is all dependant on those titles as to whether it can achieve this. You can look at these figures yourself over on Nintendo's official financial report page. So far, in the first six months of the fiscal year, the company has sold 5.07 million units of the Switch, according to its earnings report this morning.

The NES Classic Mini, and SNES Classic Mini combined sold 3.69 million units in the same period. Released in 2001 and sold through 2007, that system generated worldwide sales of 21.74 million units. It's now officially in the top 20 all-time console seller list and has its sights on the Xbox's 24 million mark next. This includes first, and third-party games.

While Nintendo hasn't yet released a new Mario Kart game for the Switch, "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe" - a port of the Wii U game - is now the second best selling game on the Switch, just behind "Super Mario Odyssey".

Nintendo's operating profit for the second quarter was up about 30 percent, to $274 million.

The holiday season will also bring in a lot of units, but Nintendo's chances of hitting 20 million are still relatively slim.
