The fortunes of Nintendo Switch persist – TechCrunch


Nintendo Switch continues to prove itself as a great little console.

Today, Nintendo has issued a press release about the victory trick that boasts of its Thanksgiving weekend sales. The company said its $ 250 million Nintendo products had been purchased over the four-day period with the company's Nintendo Switch console.

The company also revealed that after 20 months, it had sold 8.2 million Switch units in the US, last week representing the best selling week of this device yet.

In January, the company launched a big public relations campaign for its Switch numbers, announcing that this device was the most sold video game console to date. Ten months later, the pace has not slowed down much, even with several weeks of sales before Christmas and the release of Super Smash Bros Ultimate for Switch, one of the most anticipated titles of the system.

Other information in the publication (figures are for United States only):

  • To date, they have sold 22 million devices of the "3DS family"
  • Sales of the SNES Classic now amount to 2.5 million euros, the NES Classic has sold 2 million
  • Super Mario Party has exceeded one million units sold and is the best-selling title to date

For a serious company that was seriously challenged just a few years ago, Nintendo seems to be in an irreproachable state and that does not seem to bother to remind everyone.
