Switch sells over 55,000 units in South Korea in first three days

Posted on December 12, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Earlier today, Nintendo reported that Switch has sold 10 million units around the world. We also have some specific data for South Korea.

In just three days, Switch has sold more than 55,000 units. The system launched on December 1.

Switch managed to surpass the launch week sales of DS, 3DS, and Wii. Additionally, it has already outperformed the launch months of each one of those systems.

    Is this good or bad?

      It’s good. The only consoles to actually take off there are the Wii, DS, and PS2. SK is also a PC and mobile gaming country.

        The constant threat of nuclear invasion also leaves little time for Nintendo

      So according to kotaku the xbox one sold 200 units at launch in korea
      PS4 reports were that it was “sold out” but no figures were given when it launched.
      PS2 sold 1.5M units in 4 years which seems to have sold the most.

        I believe the DS is Korea’s most successful console, with around 3 million units sold in 3 years. No other console comes close.

      It beat Wii, DS etc so I say it’s pretty good lol

      55,000 in 3 days is more than 110,000 in a week, which is a very good week in Japan….so I’d say it’s insanely good for South Korea.

    Well, South Korean people are huge fans of Computer Gaming.

    In North Korea, it could only sell one, to the biggest baby in the country.

    This is actually good! South Korea isn’t really a console market, so to even sell more than half of 100k units is great news for nintendo going forward. Especially if they can add games that appeal to that part of the world (i.e. mobile/MOBA). Also, the switch is very appealing for the same reasons it is in Japan (portability).

  • That’s pretty good. Now put any drama or pop stan fave in a commercial with a Switch and watch it pop off, for real.
