Poor Wii U. While it had a lot of amazing games (The Wonderful 101 needs a sequel), it just never caught on. The same cannot be said for the Switch, however; just last week we reported on 10 million units being sold globally. Now Famitsu has revealed (via Siliconera) that 2.99 million of those sales come from Japan.

To compare, 3.32 million Wii U units were sold over its entire life-cycle in the region. It is expected that the Switch will surpass that in early 2018. An impressive feat, and one that will no doubt lead to more developers making games for the console.
