In September, Switch sale in North America was up more than 20% year to date, and in the US, the Switch was the best-selling console for 10 months, per the NPD Group.
“As we enter our third holiday season, Nintendo Switch is creating smiles and enjoying broad appeal, with more than 15 million consumers across North America playing their favourite games whenever and wherever they like,” said Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser. “And this holiday, we are bringing Nintendo Switch owners even fresher and unique entertainment experiences, like Ring Fit Adventure, Luigi’s Mansion 3, Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games: Tokyo 2020, adding to the system’s large and diverse library of games.”
The console shows no signs of slowing down either, with over a dozen games selling well over a million copies, with four of those titles selling well over six million copies, including Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
With 2019 winding down, we still have a few first-party titles coming, which are likely to impress.
