Nintendo has been doing some incredible work, and the Nintendo Switch is selling faster than anyone could have anticipated. This brings the current cumulative total for December to 844,243 units, and 3,258,083 units since launch.

NintendoSoup made a very interesting observation. Needless to say, the Nintendo Switch has done very well for itself during its first year of launch. The PS2, you will recall, is the best-selling home console of all time.

Nintendo launched the console in March with a price tag of US$300 and aims to sell 14 million units through March next year. The Switch it outpacing the PS2 by nearly a quarter-million units, and that has analysts talking.

Kimishima said he expects Switch to sell "more than 20 million" units in the year to March 2019.

Assassin's Creed, the newest game from the action-adventure blockbuster, is part of an elite group of franchises that have each sold more than 100 million copies, which includes Grand Theft Auto, FIFA and Super Mario Bros. There can be no doubt that they will meet and exceed their goal.

The latest installment of the French gamemaker's top-selling franchise, Assassin's Creed Origins, has picked up rave reviews and showed strong sales through Christmas, which could further propel shares that have already nearly doubled this year on the back of an excellent start since the game's October release.

While not a massive issue now, certainly not for Nintendo themselves, we could see some developers running into issues trying to cram their games onto smaller cards. Taskahasi also explained that there is a lot of consideration that goes into figuring out which titles would be best suited for DLC content. "We certainly like to think about which software titles would have a great value for additional content to be added". Nintendo has released a season pass for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2, as well as a whole bunch of new content and updates for Splatoon 2. They're in it for the long-haul, and things aren't going to slow down.
