Doubtful. In a year's time people will recognize that Switch is going to get an easy win.

The Switch is still over 11 million away. It will take time for it to catch up and outsell the lifetime sales of the 3DS. 

Yes, but launch-aligned it's a gap of ~2m now and momentum heavily favors Switch. 2020 is on track for 5m+ for Switch while the 3DS sold only ~3.15m in 2014; month 34 had a gap of ~2.5m, so most of that will be closed by the end of 2020.

Even if Switch declines in 2021, the 3DS declined as well, so a year from now is about the time when Switch will have passed the 3DS launch-aligned. It's hard to imagine that at that point anyone will doubt that Switch will take the win in lifetime sales.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
