Great software sales but hardware is a bit soft. It's tough to sell 20+ mill a year if you're relying on a narrow catalog of really 1st party games to sell to everyone, that's the downside of not having the type of 3rd party support Sony/MS enjoy (or even something half way close).

Look at this software numbers:

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – 16.69 million units
Super Mario Odyssey – 14.44 million units
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – 13.81 million units
Zelda: Breath of the Wild – 12.77 million units
Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu / Eevee – 10.63 million units
Splatoon 2 – 8.70 million units
Super Mario Party – 6.40 million units
New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe – 3.31 million units
1-2 Switch – 2.97 million units
Mario Tennis Aces – 2.64 million units
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze – 2.25 million units
Kirby Star Allies – 2.56 million units
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker – 1.18 million units
Octopath Traveler – 1.17 million units (excluding Japan)
Yoshi’s Crafted World – 1.11 million units
Nintendo Labo Variety Kit – 1.09 million units

I think it's very plausible to have a 10m top ten list. We're half way there, and Splatoon will reach 10m eventually. 8th gen Pokemon will reach it too, as well as Animal Crossing. Maybe Labo combined could reach it as well.

You know it deserves the GOTY.

Oh only 16.95M for FY2018. It's 1.9M more than FY2017.
I was convinced Switch shipped way beyond the 17M mark. I expected 18M / 18.5M
A bit disappointed

Insane software-sales. Super Mario Odyssey is the best-selling 3D Mario now, right?

Smash sales are quite underwhelming. Mario Kart, Odyssey and Zelda did amazingly well, though.

Damn! It was sooo close to 17mil....... I thought it was doing well enough to reach it.
And they did not got for 20mil again..... perhaps something major is getting delayed.... like Animal Crossing. Or they dont think Pokemon + AC + Cheaper SKU will do 20mil

Or they are playing it safe

Pocky Lover Boy!

Almost 14 million in 4 months is underwhelming?
