A more portable Nintendo Switch may lower the price

Nintendo Co., Ltd. (HQ: Minami-Ku, Kyoto, Representative Director and President: Shuntaro Furukawa, hereinafter referred as "Nintendo") and LINE Corporation (HQ: Shinjuku-Ku, Tokyo, President: Takeshi Idezawa, hereinafter referred as "LINE") have announced a partnership in the mobile game business.

Based on the report numbers, the system has already sold through 32.27 million units as of December 31, 2018, setting an unprecedented record for only being on the market just under two years. The Switch just so happened to release in March 2017, so this could set up a potential three-year anniversary release for the Switch mini. This new service will be launched sometime this year. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate sold 12.08 million units.

Updated totals were also offered for other games, with Super Mario Odyssey the second biggest seller on 13.73 million and officially the best-selling 3D Mario ever.

The sales of third-party games also continues to "grow steadily", and the Switch now boasts 20, 1 million-plus-selling titles.

Fans of Nintendo's Italian plumber and his racing antics have been keenly waiting for the launch of Mario Kart Tour, the mobile version of Mario Kart.
