Nintendo Switch became the best-selling Nintendo console in US history over Thanksgiving weekend
In the US so far, the Switch has sold over 8 million units and its exclusive games continue to sell well. Combined sales of PokÃ©mon: Let’s go, Pikachu! and PokÃ©mon: Let’s go, Eevee! topped 1.5 million units in the United States in less than two weeks, and Super Mario Party also topped 1 million units.
Those numbers will likely be pale compared to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which is already the best pre-sale game in the series and on Switch. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will launch exclusively on Switch on December 7th, and we’ve also heard rumors that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword may be coming to the system soon.
In October, the Switch exceeded 22 million consoles sold worldwide. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild also managed to hit 10 million total sales at the same time.
