Nintendo released an update to its yearly earnings forecast today, substantially increasing the amount of profit it expects to earn through the end of its fiscal year (Nintendoís fiscal year ends in March, not on December 31).

The Switch has had a dynamite year, outselling the PS4 and Xbox One at multiple points since its debut, and that trend is only set to increase. Nintendo has boosted Switch manufacturing and could beat the Wii Uís entire lifetime sales in just one year.

Nintendo now expects to earn $1.06 billion in profits for its full fiscal year, compared with roughly 576 million in its earlier forecasts, Reuters reports (via Geek.com). Switch shipment figures have been raised from 10 million to 14 million, which puts the console on track to crush the Wii Uís five-year run of 13.56 million units. Thus far, the Switch is thought to have sold a bit more than half its 14 million target, with 7.63 million units shipped as of September 30.
