Nintendo Switch has hit yet another huge sales milestone

The Nintendo Switch has now sold over 10 million units worldwide since launching in March 2017.

Nintendo’s hybrid console has proven to be incredibly popular across the globe, and this impressive sales figure will likely increase as the festive season approaches.

“As you can see in people’s living rooms, on a plane or riding the subway, fans all over the world can enjoy playing Nintendo Switch wherever they go,” said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. “The response from fans has been great, and we’re doing our very best to satisfy demand during the holiday shopping season.”

The Japanese company has made a tremendous comeback following the underwhelming Wii U, which only managed to sell 13.56 million units during its 4 year life-span.

We love the Nintendo Switch, which scored 8/10 in our review and was rewarded our product of the year award earlier last month.

‘I’ve slowly but surely been won over by the charm of the Switch. Its versatility and accessibility make it a joy to play, particularly as a portable machine. With Nintendo swiftly addressing my biggest concern with the hardware, it’s hard to argue this console isn’t absolutely brimming with potential in the months to come.’

Switch has also seen a variety of fantastic exclusive games emerge this year including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey and Splatoon 2.

Combine those with a slew of addictive indie titles such as Stardew Valley and Rocket League and it’s easy to see why Nintendo’s console has proven so successful.
