Comparing Nintendo Switch Sales To The Wii's And The Wii U's

Nintendo Switch Online is finally happening

Nintendo Switch's Sales to Customers Are Over 13 Million Units; SNES Classic at 4 Million Units

Indeed, Nintendo's strategy of releasing several major games in succession was assuredly responsible for much of the console's success in 2017. If this was a reason at one point, there's no reason for it to still be one. The company recently announced that the hybrid console has surpassed the Nintendo Wii's lifetime hardware sales less than a year since its release. Taking all this into consideration, it's pretty clear that the Wii U is officially irrelevant and has been completely replaced by the Switch. But getting charged for a service that's now free might go down easier if Switch owners got a big new Nintendo game to play online. That's significantly less expensive than Sony and Microsoft's online services, which run about $60 when purchased one year at a time.

Nintendo Switch's online service will launch in September 2018 according to a Tweet from Nintendo of America. However, it's unclear if titles like Dr. Mario, Super Mario Bros. "3", "Balloon Fight", and "Dr. Mario".

But the console has proved all doubters wrong, and since its launch Nintendo's market value has been steadily rising to reflect this. Nintendo has yet to say if or when the Virtual Console will make its way to Switch.

First up, the company has explained that it expects the Nintendo Switch's lifespan to outlive that of traditional generations.

Orca are able to mimic human speech, according to new study
The human words and phrases she attempted to copy included "ah ah", "hello", " bye bye", " Amy ", "one two" and " one two three ". But just because animals can mimic human sounds, that does not mean that they understand our language, she added.

Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima has reportedly stated to Japanese newspaper Nikkei, as translated by Nintendo Soup, that he wants to carry on selling the Switch for more than just the five or six-year average of most consoles.

Until then, all you Switch owners can keep on collecting Power Moons in Super Mario Odyssey, as Nintendo continues to roll out those sweet exclusives. I know this probably sounds ridiculous since the 3DS can play all other handheld Nintendo games, from the Game Boy to Game Boy Color to DS to, obviously, 3DS.

And the Switch train isn't about to stop anytime soon with Nintendo set to launch the Labo line of cardboard accessories for the Switch.
