YouTuber manages to test 3D virtual reality video on Nintendo Switch

The company is projecting that the Switch will ship over 10 million units by the end of the financial year.

In an earnings report released earlier today, Nintendo confirmed that the Pokemon franchise helped boost their 2016 revenue and profits. Software sales, meanwhile, grew 14 per cent year-on-year, to 55.08m units. It is still quite hard to buy the Switch far and wide, and comparative supply requirements implied that the globally popular Wii just sold around the same number of its fizzled successor, the Wii U that was closed officially, in the month of its release. Nintendo wants to sell 10 million units, and that's with the ongoing shortage.

Japan's Nintendo Co Ltd said on Thursday it expects operating profit to jump 121 percent in the year through March 2018, bolstered by strong demand for its new Switch console.

Although shares of Nintendo are down today, the stock has risen 68% in the past year.

It's not all bad news, though, and others have experienced fewer or no problems with the Switch eShop curation and process. The holiday push could propel the Switch past the Wii U. All of the Switch sales hinge on whether Nintendo can keep the Switch in stock at retail stores, which it's struggle to do.

Weirdly, it has also been revealed that Nintendo sold 2.76 million copies of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Switch.

Assuming Zelda is one of those games for almost everyone - which is fair speculation based on the performance so far - that means Nintendo will need a couple more hits for this year. By contrast, Wii U hardware sales decreased 77% year-on-year. Digital sales were also down to a large extent on the same period a year ago due to there being relatively fewer offerings of downloadable content.

So, if you are longing to get one Nintendo Switch console, you still have a chance to grab one at any of these outlets.

On the flipside, even after the fact that the Nintendo 3DS already had a good run and with its sales slightly plummeting due to the Switch's release, the fact that there are tons of games available for it can't be denied.

Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto has explained in a new interview the company hopes its Nintendo NX console is a bigger hit. Nintendo also called out 1-2-Switch as a title that has been "generating buzz", but it didn't give us any solid sales numbers for any games aside from Breath of the Wild.
