Nintendo Switch

It represents a new milestone for the Switch as Nintendo's latest console has now outsold the GameCube.

Highly anticipated: Nintendo's Switch is midway through its second year and sales continue to be incredibly solid.

Switch sales have also already passed lifetime sales of the Wii U, which maxed out at 13.56 million units.

Nintendo expects that the releases of "Super Mario Party", which came out earlier this month, but isn't part of the first half of Nintendo's fiscal year, two "Pokemon" titles, and "Super Smash Bros".

The data reveals that the Switch sold 3.19m units in the last quarter, meaning that the console has now shifted 5.07m units so far this financial year. The company has also sold 111.10 million software units for the Switch. It's now officially in the top 20 all-time console seller list and has its sights on the Xbox's 24 million mark next. Nintendo didn't really have any major new releases during this period, either, with Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and a Labo Vehicle Kit being the only first-party highlights. The company's 5.07 million units sold for the first half of this fiscal is up from 4.89 million for the same period previous year. These are impressive numbers to go alongside Switch's impressive console sales numbers. The sales surpassed 500,000 units in Japan in four weeks - outpacing Sony's PlayStation 4 over the same time period - and surpassed 1 million units in Japan by June 25.

Super Mario Odyssey now at 12.17m copies sold in just under a year (1m for the quarter), Mario Kart 8 Deluxe at 11.71m (1.36m for the quarter), and Breath of the Wild Switch now 10.28m (960k for the quarter).

Over its lifetime between 2001-2007, the GameCube managed to sell a very respectable 21.74 million units.
