With series such as Fire Emblem, Metroid and Pokémon making their way to the console, it's unlikely that the company will be focusing on the Switch's successor any time soon. Nintendo, usually conservative in its estimates, even went as far as to bump up its estimate of units sold for the fiscal year ending March 2018 from 10 million to 14 million. Profits skyrocketed too - $177.5 billion yen in 2017 ($1.5 billion U.S.) up 505 percent from $29.3 billion yen ($270 million U.S.) the year prior.
Nintendo's gamble with the Switch console has paid off handsomely with the company shifting 18 million units of the hybrid gaming console since it shipped in March past year.
The Switch has been a big success for Nintendo ever since it launched last March, and now the company has reported that nothing has changed.

The Kyoto-based company also said it named Managing Executive Officer Shuntaro Furukawa as new president to succeed Tatsumi Kimishima, effective after the general shareholders meeting in June. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 has also sold over 1.3 million units, an impressive feat for a niche JRPG.
Kimishima, 68, is the fifth Nintendo President, having stepped into the role following the passing of Satoru Iwata in 2015. Furukawa is known as a very intelligent person who is even able to speak fluent English.
He also talked about bringing Nintendo out of status quo: "I grew up playing the Famicom and come from that generation. He may be the flawless person to fill the communication gap that exists between Nintendo and investors".
