Today Nintendo announced that the Nintendo Switch has sold 10 million units since its launch in March of this year. The hybrid console is already closing-in on the Wii U, which is still sitting under the 15 million mark. According to Nintendo, March isn’t usually an ideal month for a console launch. This had little effect on the Switch, which immediately sold out in many places around the world.
Despite launching in March, a month not usually reserved for home console launches, and with the busy holiday shopping season still in full swing, the Nintendo Switch system has already sold 10 million units to consumers around the world, according to Nintendo’s internal sales figures.
Momentum for the Nintendo Switch has remained strong thanks partially to the non-stop game releases making their way to the system. With games like Super Mario Odyssey, Zelda Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2 and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 – the Switch has the games to attract consumer attention.
