Hot cakes!

Nintendo's Q1 financial results have been posted - we'll be pulling them apart very soon - but the big news is that the Switch has sold 4.7 million consoles worldwide since its launch at the start of the year.

In addition to that, 13.6 million pieces of Switch software have been sold globally. Of these, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has contributed 3.54 million sales, Zelda: Breath of the Wild 3.92 million and ARMS 1.18 million.

Nintendo's recent results detail the period April through June 2017, during which 1.97 million Switches and 8.14 million Switch games were sold.

Nintendo's target of 10 million consoles for this financial year still looks doable, but stock shortages have hampered the company's efforts, with Switch proving very hard to come by in its homeland.
