Bullet points: (note: all of those numbers are retail only)

-In 2017, they announced their pretty high objective of reaching two millions units sold by the end of 2018. They reached it and even surpassed it by a little bit, by selling 2.04 millions at the end of December. 1.13 millions of that number comes from 2018, versus 911k in 2017.

- They had holiday sales comparable to those of the Wii, with weeks that sold in the hundreds of thousands

- 3DS sold 254k in 2018, versus 507k in 2017, for a grand total of 5.5 millions LTD.

- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the third best selling game of 2018 all platforms combined at retail. The ranking is Fifa 19 > RDR2 > MK8DX. It sold 1.2 millions LTD, with 700k of that in 2018 (so higher than in 2017). (note: it's a similar performance as in UK where MK8DX sold more in its second year than in its first)

- Super Mario Party is the fifth best selling game of 2018 all platforms combined at retail. Pokémon is seventh, Super Mario Odyssey eight and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate ninth. All of those titles sold more than 400k LTD.

-They're expecting to sell even more units this year than in 2018.

Haha I know, that bastard couldn't let me have the victory

Expecting more units 2019 might be an indicator that Nintendo in general expects more than 20 million units next FY, even though this is the calendar year



Just in case someone forgot how humongous MK8DX is ...

Congrats switch! Good milestone after a short time. 



I've made some adjustments to the hardware figures to be more in line with these figures. 3DS adjusted down for all 2018 and Switch adjusted up in December.

Really I respect a lot what you do here, all of you. I come here everydays to check new charts, but is it really necessary to write : 1.364.851 instead of 1.365.000 ?

You have updated this number and added exactely 41000. Having more than 4 significant numerical digits is perfectly useless in 99,9% of the applications. One of the data chief here told me that every estimation had an accuracy of +/-10%.
