Nintendo revealed their 2nd quarter financial results, and they have shown that the Switch is clearly meeting all the hype.

Already smacking down Wii U numbers, by beating half its lifetime sales in just 6 months. Nintendo clearly listened to their customer base with the Switch, and of course, it helps they have delivered two top 5 games of all time, all within 6 months. It’s a historic launch for them. Since the Switch has launched, it has sold over 7.6 million units as of September 2017, while the Wii U sold 13.5 million units since it’s launch back in 2012.

As far as more numbers go, the Switch launched with the highly-anticipated Zelda: Breath of the Wild and the game has sold 4.7 million copies. Right behind it is Mario Kart 8 which has sold over 4.42 million copies. Landing in 3rd, but still impressive, is Splatoon 2 with 3.61 million copies sold. All these numbers are before Super Mario Odyssey’s launch and Christmas season, so these numbers are due to rise.
