Nintendo has said that it expects to shift 20 million Switch systems in the current financial year, which ends in March 2019.

The company has issued this bold projection as part of its yearly financial summary, where it confirmed that almost 18 million consoles have been sold since the Switch launched in March last year.

The company is also predicting that it will sell 100 million units of Switch software - across both retail and digital - during the same timeframe.

4 million units of the 3DS consoles (across the entire 3DS family, of course) are expected to sell between now and March 2019, with 16 million software sales.
