Nintendo's Labo kits let Switch owners build their own cardboard peripherals

Nintendo Labo “build-and-play” kits revealed for Nintendo Switch

As for the software, most of the Switch games were in the top for the overall software sales as shared by Nintendo. Last week Microsoft revealed the Xbox One bested the PS4 in December, but ultimately came in second to the Nintendo Switch, and now The Big N has revealed some details of their own.

Nintendo has announced its Switch sales figures through December 2017, and surprise-the console did very well.

As for the rest of Nintendo's hardware lineup, the company said it sold 1.5 million Nintendo Switch systems and roughly 350,000 Super NES Classic Edition consoles during the five-week reporting period of December. Four Nintendo Switch games finished high on the December sales charts for individual titles: Super Mario Odyssey at No. 3, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe at No. 4, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild at No. 9 and Splatoon 2 at No. 16.

Nintendo has released numbers confirming December 2017 as their biggest hardware sales month in seven years in the United States. It is setting new sales record for Nintendo which should prove to be good news for them after the lackluster sale of the Nintendo Wii U.

"The Nintendo 3DS family of systems also demonstrated continued strength, posting its best sales month since December 2014", reads the announcement.

Nintendo plans to sell 20 million units of the Nintendo Switch for the current fiscal year. Additionally, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon for Nintendo 3DS finished No. 13 and No. 14, respectively.
