It even appeared as though the company had taken notice last week, as Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa said in a interview that they are "not considering a successor or a price cut at this time".

Nikkei also revealed in its report that Nintendo is planning to release a smaller Nintendo Switch, which is something that has been rumored for some time. That would place its release between January and March of this year.

That number comes from what the Nintendo Switch sold last year, having cleared out 17.79 million units in its initial fiscal year.

That's in large part thanks to Super Smash Bros.

The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild has also been confirmed as the best-selling Zelda ever on 13.18 million - around 1.5 million of which are for the Wii U version. Pokemon: Let's Go, meanwhile, shifted 10 million, and Super Mario Party, which launched on October 5th, sold 5.3 million. But just how popular are the Switch's biggest games?

"Utilizing both companies" strengths, Nintendo and LINE will co-develop and jointly operate a new action puzzle game featuring Dr. Mario titled "Dr. Mario World" to be released by Nintendo", according to Nintendo's announcement. Two other titles still in-development for mobile from Nintendo include Mario Kart Tour, set to arrive this summer, and a Legend of Zelda game which was announced in 2017.

The Switch's monthly online service launched in 2018, and plan to launch a new service aimed at game enthusiasts willing to pay more sometime in 2019.
