May 2020 NPD: Switch was the best-selling hardware platform, highest unit sales in a May month since DS in 2009
In the United States last month, Switch again performed well. The latest NPD report reveals that the console kept its streak going as the best-selling hardware platform in both unit and dollar sales.
There’s another impressive stat for Nintendo as well. Switch unit sales were the highest for an individual platform in a May month since the DS in May 2009.
We should also note that Switch’s year-to-date dollar sales remain the highest of any hardware platform in US history. Wii set the previous high in the year-to-date period ending May 2008.
