Nintendo Switch worldwide sales top 10M units

Nintendo Switch worldwide sales top 10M units

December 12, 2017 | By Chris Kerr




The Nintendo Switch has sold-through more than 10 million units since launching on March 3, 2017. 

Nintendo broke the news in a short press release, and revealed it plans to "ship more units than ever before" in Japan this holiday season. 

The Switch has been in demand since it launched at the start of the year, and it now looks like the handheld-hybrid will eclipse the Wii U's lifetime sales total of 13.56 million units during its first year on shelves. 

In fact, Nintendo is banking on it, and expects the system to ship over 14 million units by the end of this fiscal year on March 31, 2018. 

The Switch had previously sold 7.63 million units as of September 30, meaning Nintendo has sold-through another 2.37 million consoles in the 10 weeks since.
