has eclipsed Wii U lifetime sales in less than a year.

Nintendo has managed to banish the Wii U blues in just nine months, as Switch hardware and game sales soar.

The Nintendo Switch has sold 14.86 million units, surpassing the Wii U’s 13.5 million lifetime sales.

According to Eurogamer, first-party game sales are incredibly high, with huge attachment rates.

Super Mario Odyssey has sold more than 9 million units, which is a lot of power moons!

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is on 7.33 million sales, followed by Zelda: Breath of the Wild with 6.7million units and Splatoon 2 at nearly 5 million.

And Nintendo can expect to sell even more thanks to an amazing new deal available at Argos.

Argos is currently offering 10% discounts on items purchased through its eBay store.

By entering the discount code ‘PAYDAY10’, customers can get money off orders over £40.

Nintendo Switch consoles can be picked up for £279.99 with no games.

Applying the discount cuts the price to just £252, although that’s before the £3.99 postage and packaging fee. You can also use the offer to pick up some new games.

The only downside is that the offer ends on February 1, so you don’t have long to take advantage.

And speaking of the Switch, the company recently announced a new range of Nintendo Labo Toys, which are cardboard creations aimed at kids.

Launching in April, the cardboard kits will let users build motorbikes, robots and fishing lines.

Working alongside Joy-Cons, Switch consoles and software, players can even make a functioning piano.

As you play, the IR Motion Camera in the Right Joy-Con detects which keys are being pressed and plays each note through the console’s built-in speakers.
