Nintendo Switch sales surge on success of new Mario, Zelda games

This essentially allowed the hackers to have higher privileges on the Switch than Nintendo allows, which would provide the means to run non-Nintendo approved software on the hybrid console. After selling 10 million Switches and almost on the way to selling 14 million units within the console's first year on store shelves, Nintendo is looking to sell 20 million units in the next Japanese fiscal year. In any case, a Direct has been long overdue since the Nintendo Switch doesn't have many major game announcements left leading into 2018 and beyond. We are proud to award Nintendo with the titles of Shacknews Best Developer and Publisher of the Year.

"That being said, when we were first presented with the Switch concept and some of the key games coming for it, I think a lot of folks who have been in the industry for a while, we all kind of felt, 'Oh, we've got a victor here'". The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was Digital Trends' game of the year in 2017, and we also loved Super Mario Odyssey and Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle for their innovative takes on the Mario formula. From a developer standpoint, they successfully released a brand new Zelda and Mario game in the same calendar year in the United States. Amazon has released its list of the best-selling games from 2017, and Nintendo managed to take seven of the top 10 spots. It is clear that Nintendo's development teams are now more focused and able to crank out quality titles at a pace not seen in quite some time.

It remains to be seen how Nintendo will follow up their fantastic 2017.

While it's very unlikely that we'll see any new Castlevania or Contra adventures from Konami, there's always a good chance of seeing classics find a second chance at life - like on the Nintendo Switch.
