The Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite gaming consoles have sold over 15 million units combined in North America since the launch of the flagship Nintendo Switch console in March 2017, according to internal data from Nintendo.
Through September, Nintendo Switch sales in North America were up more than 20% year to date. In the U.S. alone, Nintendo Switch has been the best-selling video game console for 10 months in a row, according to the NPD Group, which tracks video game sales in the United States.
To date, 14 Nintendo Switch games in North America have sold more than 1 million units, with four selling more than 6 million units: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Franchises like Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros. broke records on Nintendo Switch, with their latest iterations selling faster than any other games in the series.
Multiple games from publisher and developer partners have also achieved significant sales, such as Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle from Ubisoft, Minecraft from Mojang and Fortnite from Epic Games.
Nintendo is ramping up for the holiday season with launches of big games like Luigi’s Mansion 3, Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, and Ring Fit Adventure.
