The Nintendo Switch has been very popular for Nintendo and that is just what they needed after the situation with the Wii U several years ago. In fact, we recently heard that over in Japan, the Switch has sold 1.5 million units. Overall sales are 5 million units sold worldwide.
The Switch has managed to sell 5,195,578 units around the globe. Also 10,106,874 games have been sold for the Switch at retail. Nintendo has to be loving the success of their latest console. Keep in mind that these numbers are only growing daily.
Interestingly, the Switch has performed the best in the US where the console has sold over 1.7 million units. This is followed by Europe which is said to be close 1.4 million units. Not surprisingly, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is also the console’s top selling game at retail with an estimated 3.37 million units, followed by Mario Kart 8 Deluxe at 2.6 million units, and Splatoon 2 at 1.1 million units. Nintendo is doing great right now and pleasing fans everywhere. We hope that they can keep it up. It will be up to them to give us some more great games to keep this success going. The holiday season coming up should add to these numbers.
