Nintendo has announced that the Switch console has sold 10 million units worldwide. Here’s what Nintendo’s PR said about the feat:
“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.”
Not many expected the Switch to sell this well, but all year the console has been popular among gamers thanks to its hybrid design and some incredible games — Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Odyssey, to name a few.
Many had wondered if the Switch could outsell its predecessor, the Wii U, during year one. It now seems very likely.
