Nintendo Switch makes history in the US

Once holding the record for most consoles sold in 10 months was the Nintendo Wii.

Nintendo recently updated their Nintendo Switch sales forecast this year predicting that the company will sell at least 20 million units by the end of their 2018 fiscal year. With the lackluster performance of the Wii U, we are ecstatic and proud of Nintendo for bringing themselves back up with the success of the Switch.

Andy Murray latest big name to pull out of Australian Open 2018
Williams was coy about her plans to defend her title after losing to French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko in Dubai last week. There was optimism after he replaced Novak Djokovic during last week's Mubadala World Tennis Championships .

In early December, the company said the Nintendo Switch had reached 10 million sales worldwide, and expects to hit the 14 million mark by March. Crowd favorites like Skyrim, L.A. Noir, Fifa, and the 2K series have all been ported to the Nintendo Switch.

After leaks this week pointed to up to 18 new titles potentially ready to be announced for the console, more rumours have surfaced suggesting what these games could include. This greatly cuts down on the console wars of the past and focuses more on the true features of a console. Nintendo Switch was the biggest leap by Nintendo which not only transformed the outlook of a portable gaming console but merged the feature of co-op play as well as a widescreen support into a small cute little box. It seems now that the portability of the Nintendo Switch is winning over other competitors. Fortunately for Nintendo, those people were completely wrong and the Nintendo Switch did very well. It will be interesting to see what sales look like over the following years.

The news came at a great time as it helped Nintendo Switch library grew stronger. As long as Nintendo continues to appeal to their target market of gamers, the sky is the limit.
