Nintendo’s previous announcement came towards the end of October, which means from then until now, the company has managed to shift over 2 million units of the console. This is also despite the fact that unlike many companies that are looking to take advantage of the Black Friday shopping spree, Nintendo did not discount the console, although we can only imagine that they would have sold much more if they did.
According to Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime, “As you can see in people’s living rooms, on a plane or riding the subway, fans all over the world can enjoy playing Nintendo Switch wherever they go. The response from fans has been great, and we’re doing our very best to satisfy demand during the holiday shopping season.”
The Switch’s success is certainly a stark contrast to that of the Wii U, where we’re seeing much more support for the console, and where it even has been awarded the honor of being named TIME’s Top Gadget of 2017.
