Nintendo has sold more than 10 million Switch consoles since launch

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

The Nintendo Switch, or How Nintendo Got Its Groove Back, is now in the hands of about 10 million people worldwide.

It's slightly surprising given Nintendo's last console wasn't as popular, and because supply was initially limited at launch. Another benefit was that, unlike Nintendo's more recent consoles, The Switch came bundled with two controllers, allowing friends and family to play together immediately. The Nintendo Switch carries a list price of $300.

"We are delighted that many fans across Australia and New Zealand and around the world are enjoying Nintendo Switch", said Nintendo Australia Managing Director Kamon Yoshimura. Adding on to the new device's milestone chart comes the Nintendo Switch moving over 10 million units.

If there's one thing we can point to that's likely responsible for the unmitigated success of the Switch, it's the software lineup. Within the first year of sale, the Wii had smashed 20 million consoles shipped, jumping up by a whopping seven million units sold between the nine-month to one-year mark. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, ARMS, and Splatoon 2 were all also fantastic first party additions coming out of Nintendo's camp.

There are a few simple reasons that the Switch has been such a smash hit, whereas the Wii U was a flop. It seems like it is nearly a daily occurrence when I receive a press release or hear from a developer about how their game is heading to the Switch. "The company nailed it this year".

A steady cadence of major game releases and a simple concept helped make the Switch such a success. The company's Super NES Classic Edition throwback console has emerged as one of the hottest gifts the holiday shopping season, similar to the attention the NES Classic Edition attracted a year ago. "There will be lots more for consumers soon".
