October 30, 2017 | By Chris Kerr

Newsbrief: The Nintendo Switch has sold almost 8 million units worldwide since launching earlier this year. 

According to the latest figures from Nintendo, Switch sales totaled 7.63 million units as of September 30, 2017, but it's likely even more have flown off shelves in the month since.
