Nintendo Switch may need just one year to beat Wii U

It is a clear indication that Nintendo expects to have sold that many in the near future though and that's a great sign for the console's life and should see a lot of new games coming out of that platform because of it. The console itself has now sold 7.6m units - that means that in six months it has sold half as many units as Wii U managed in its entire lifetime (13.6m), and could best its total in year one.

The signs are already promising.

Nintendo has doubled its revenue estimate for 2017 following demand for the Nintendo Switch console. The company's gamble on a dual-purpose console is paying off handsomely, prompting Nintendo to adjust its full-year forecast to reflect a much bigger anticipated profit.

Looking forward, Nintendo forecasts a profit of 120 billion yen ($1.06 billion) for the year ending in March, an upward revision from 65 billion yen estimated three months ago.

But Nintendo's core business is still going strong.

Given Nintendo has persistently struggled to keep enough Switch console on the physical and virtual shelves, the achievement is even more marked. With that in mind, chess on Nintendo's ultra-portable Switch hardware certainly makes for an ideal match. Either way, two things are certain: GameCube controller support is here to stay, and players are clamoring for Super Smash Bros. on the Nintendo Switch.

Problems regarding available supplied of Nintendo Switch stock appear to be easing, which has helped the company reach its highest performance in seven years.

Between April and September, Nintendo launched several titles for Switch such as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and popular title Splatoon2.

With the busiest season of the year rapidly approaching, Nintendo is upping its production in the hope of meeting the festive rush head on.
