E3 2018: Fortnite Is Coming To Nintendo Switch With Exclusive Content

E3 2018: Fortnite Is Coming To Nintendo Switch With Exclusive Content

For its first year, for example, Nintendo was not expecting to sell more than 10 million units and was forced to ramp up production because of the unexpectedly high demand for the Switch.

Nintendo Switch may be dominating the conversation, but, thanks to more than 72 million units sold worldwide, Nintendo 3DS games will continue to release in 2018 and beyond. Since its March 3, 2017 release Nintendo has moved more Switch consoles than the Wii U in its entire lifetime.

And it's not just the hardware that's selling: Some key Nintendo software titles for the Switch are blockbusters in their own rights.

To put that in perspective, its previous generation Wii U console sold 13.56 million units during its entire five-year run. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild and Splatoon 2 have sold about 1.5 and 1 million units.

As for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition aka the SNES Mini, sales hit 5.28 million the world over.

Nintendo's stellar lineup is one big reason for the Switch's massive success. Additionally, Nintendo also stated digital sales for the Switch have been "very good" - rising 87 percent YOY to ¥60.8 billion.

Shuntaro Furukawa, 46, will replace the 68-year-old Kimishima on June 28. Earlier today, while the briefing was being held, they announced their E3 plans.

The success of the new device, which can also be used connected to a TV at home, propelled the company to a net profit of JPY 139.6 billion in the past year, up 36.1 percent. The Switch itself was a pretty bold experiment, as are the company's just-launched Nintendo Labo building toys - with a younger leader at the helm, it's possible we'll see Nintendo become even more fearlessly creative.

LeakyPandy, a Twitter user who already has correctly predicted some of the announcements of Nintendo, in the past, has made a decision to share all the rumors and speculations he known of regarding the alleged arrival of Fortnite on Nintendo Switch.

At a news conference in Osaka, Furukawa promised to bring out Nintendo's full potential.
