Nintendo Switch games console overtakes the Wii U



The Nintendo Switch games console has outsold its predecessor, just 10 months after its launch.

 
Nintendo sold 7.23 million Switch consoles in the previous quarter, bringing total sales to about 14.86 million devices.


The Wii U, which went on sale in November 2012, sold 13.56 million units before it was discontinued in 2017 and was considered a commercial failure.


Nintendo reported its most profitable quarter since 2009.


The company announced an operating profit of 116.50 billion yen (£755m, $1.07 billion), up from 32.26 billion yen a year ago.
