Nintendo says Switch sales saw a big rise during the holidays, pace close to Wii

Posted on January 31, 2019 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch, Wii

This information comes from Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa…

This graph shows the trend in cumulative sell-through following the launch of Nintendo Switch in our major markets. Because Nintendo Switch was launched in March, its sales can’t be directly compared to those of Wii or Wii U, which were launched in the holiday season. Even so, Nintendo Switch sell-through rose greatly during this past holiday season, and it continues to sell at a pace close to that of Wii up to this point.

And cumulative global sell-through, including sales outside of the major markets you saw on the previous slides, has surpassed 30 million units as of the end of January, and the Nintendo Switch business is on a trajectory for further growth. Also, all of the new titles released in succession during the holiday season also showed exceptional sales.
