The Switch became the best-selling Nintendo console in US history for the five-day period from Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday - even more than the Wii - and had its best-selling week ever in the U.S.

When the Nintendo Switch launched in 2017, it looked like it would be a runaway success.

Nintendo also revealed that the lifetime sales of the Nintendo Switch in the United States have surpassed 8.2 million units, and Nintendo 3DS lifetime sales in the United States have surpassed 22 million units.

This bodes well for the forthcoming December holiday sales rush, which, combined with the release of Super Smash Bros. Consumer spent more than $250 million on Nintendo products this sale season, crowning Nintendo Switch to have a best-selling week in the States. This will definitely help the company reach its desired 20 million units sold worldwide mark. Ultimate in December, but would the Switch, still priced at $300, really be able to compete with $200 PS4 and Xbox One bundles?


“With the holiday season already in full force, we wanted to offer a deal on Nintendo Switch to help make holiday shopping a little easier for families, ” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of Americas Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

If you're looking to get the best console video gaming experience money can buy right now, the Xbox One X is, hands-down, the best option available. Are you surprised by the amount of Let's Go games being sold? We'll let you know once final sales numbers are reported in January.

This places Super Mario Party at 13th in the list of best-selling Switch games, above Pokken Tournament DX and just below Xenoblade Chronicles 2.
