Nintendo Switch Worldwide Sales Reach Over 10 Million

Holiday Wish Guide Gifts for Nintendo Fans from Budding Gamers to Experienced Players

As of September 30, Switch sales sat at 7.63 million, meaning Nintendo has sold almost 2.5 million units of its hybrid console in the last two and a half months. "The response from fans has been great, and we're doing our very best to satisfy demand during the holiday shopping season".

For comparison, the company's previous system the Wii U sold 13.56 million units over five years. The Wii shifted 100 million units throughout its lifetime, and while the Switch is certainly performing well, it isn't quite on that level just yet. As a effect, the publisher wants to port over games to Switch that were previously not available on Nintendo consoles. The Nintendo Switch carries a list price of $300.

The numbers are especially promising for Nintendo, which experienced severe supply chain issues during the console's first few months and struggled to meet demand.

Nintendo Switch Worldwide Sales Reach Over 10 Million

Looks like Nintendo has hit on its hands. The unit is the first home console that can be played on a TV and also be taken instantly on the go, allowing players to experience their favourite games anytime, anywhere and with anyone. It should become easier to find for the holiday season thanks to increased production, but still, getting a Switch has been fairly hard since it came out. At some point in 2018 as well Nintendo will launch their full online network for the Switch which should hopefully bring more excitement to the platform as more features are revealed over the coming weeks and months.

The only place you could play any of the games above - with the exception of "Breath of the Wild", which could also be played on Wii U - is on a Switch. The Switch is now on target to surpass these sales within its first year on the market, depending upon how well it sells around the Christmas period.
