If you needed any more proof that the Nintendo Switch is a bonafide hit, look no further than the company's first quarter results for the fiscal year 2018, which have just been released.
The big news is that the Switch has sold nearly 20 million units (specifically 19.67 million) in the first 16 months since its release in March 2017. For comparison, Sony's PlayStation 4 sold 20 million units in its first 16 months as well but had the benefit of two holiday seasons to do it whereas the Switch has had one.
Switch software sales have hit 83.93 million units with Super Mario Odyssey leading as the top-selling title with 11.7 million units sold. Following that, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has hit just under that with 10.35 million units, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sits in third with 9.32 million units, fourth goes to Splatoon with a respectable 6.76 million units, and 1-2 Switch manages to nab the fifth spot with 2.45 units. It's also worth noting that ARMS has finally broken 2 million units (2.01 million units, specifically), sitting just under 1-2 Switch on the chart.
Nintendo is aiming for Switch to sell nearly 40 million units by the end of fiscal 2018, which will end on March 31, 2019.
