In just ten months, the Nintendo Switch has surpassed its predecessor's lifetime sales. More Switch consoles have been sold than the Wii U managed to sell in five years on the market. While that undoubtedly speaks to the apathetic response to the Wii U, it's also a sign that the Switch is exactly what Nintendo needed it to be.
According to the BBC, Nintendo sold 7.23 million Switch consoles last quarter, which brings the total sales to around 14.86 million. Between November 2012 when it launched to its death in 2017, Nintendo sold 13.56 million Wii Us.
