This has been the refrain of doubters for as long as many gamers can remember. After selling 10 million Switches and almost on the way to selling 14 million units within the console's first year on store shelves, Nintendo is looking to sell 20 million units in the next Japanese fiscal year. We haven't announced anything for Switch following Wolfenstein II in 2018, but if and when we do, we will let you know. We are proud to award Nintendo with the titles of Shacknews Best Developer and Publisher of the Year. While the new hardware started Nintendo's 2017 rise, it was blockbuster releases from its two venerable and massively successful franchises that carried the momentum. New Metroid Prime and Pokémon games are also in the works. This accomplishment speaks to the strength of the company's new strategy.
Darkest Dungeon lives up to its name as it is a merciless and relentless dungeon crawling RPG, while the game has met with great acclaim on the PC, iOS, and PS4, it seems that the dungeons are looking to inhabt the Switch and the XBox as we see Darkest Dungeon Switch and Xbox One Rated by PEGI (Pan European Game Information), the rating board for Eurpoean games. Both games are available for the Switch platform. Super Mario Odyssey's position is quite remarkable, considering it launched the latest and yet still secured second place.
It isn't just about Mario and Zelda. It is clear that Nintendo's development teams are now more focused and able to crank out quality titles at a pace not seen in quite some time. They deserve high praise for taking a chance and allowing Ubisoft to experiment with their IP crown jewel, Mario.More news: Pakistan summons United States ambassador over Trump's tweet

It remains to be seen how Nintendo will follow up their incredible 2017.
"We've already announced some big third-party games like Wolfenstein (II: The New Colossus) that are coming for core gamers, for family gamers there's a Kirby game (Kirby Star Allies) coming in the next few months, there's a Yoshi game that has been hinted at, we've shown a logo for a Metroid Prime 4 game and not much else - but all of that suggests an unbelievable slate of ongoing support both from our internal studios and from third party".
