Time for a Switch? Nintendo dominated Amazon's best-selling games list for 2017

Switch Overtakes PS2's First year Sales Record in Japan

For most companies that would be a hard ask, but this is Nintendo, which is a company overflowing with IP that sells millions of copies every time a new game launches. On the other hand, Nintendo held a Direct past year at this time so it is entirely possible that this rumour has some credibility. This was despite Nintendo's constant dilemma of keeping a balance between the delivered number of units versus the demand.

Amazon placeholders hint at an upcoming Nintendo Direct that may see more than 16 games unveiled.

Bethesda Softworks also announced in 2017 that several of its successful franchises will be released on the Switch, and these include the first-person shooter "Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus" that will launch this year on a still unknown date. After selling 10 million Switches and almost on the way to selling 14 million units within the console's first year on store shelves, Nintendo is looking to sell 20 million units in the next Japanese fiscal year. It's so popular that Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima just set a very high new target for sales during fiscal 2018.

According to the German convention, Nintendo has done a good job in its security system, but the weak point of Switch is the NVIDIA Tegra X1 chip which, being well known and documented, has allowed hackers to exploit a backdoor. The first console component in the list is Nintendo Switch's Joy-Con. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Zelda: Breath of the Wild both re-entered the top ten meanwhile, taking #9 and #10, with Zelda rising a whole ten places from last week. Kimishima also spoke briefly on the console's issues being kept in stock at the various retailers that have difficulty keeping it available for eager Switch faithful.
