Nintendo Switch surpasses 2M sales in the U.S.

Nintendo Switch surpasses 2M sales in the U.S.

October 19, 2017 | By Chris Kerr

Newsbrief: The Nintendo Switch has sold over 2 million units in the U.S. alone, according to the latest NPD figures. 

September also marked the Switch's third straight month as the best-selling current-gen console in the States, which is the fifth time it's held the top spot since launching in March. 

It's an impressive achievement for the hybrid console, especially when you consider it's yet to see its first (presumably bumper) holiday season. 

According to Nintendo's official figures, worldwide Switch sales totaled 4.7 million units as of June 30, 2017. 

Of course, those numbers are over three months old, and if the console has already surpassed 2M sales in the States, it'd be fair to assume worldwide sales have also seen a healthy rise.
