Switch has reached another major milestone. Based on the latest information provided by NPD, Nintendo has confirmed that its console is now the fastest-selling home gaming system ever in Canada.

Pierre-Paul Trepanier, Nintendo of Canada’s general manager and senior director, said in a statement today:

“The response that the Nintendo Switch has received from Canadians has been nothing short of spectacular. We’re thrilled to have seen such record-breaking momentum in 2017.”

Nintendo announced earlier this month that Switch had become the fastest-selling home video game system of all time in the U.S. as well. Over 4.8 million units have been sold in the country since launch.

A few days ago, Nintendo shared a bunch of data about its sales performance in the US last month. The company followed up yesterday with some news for Canada.

In October, Switch was the most-sold gaming system. It’s also still the best-selling system of 2017.

Switch has done very well this year in many parts of the world. That includes Canada, where the system has sold 209,000 units. Switch has been the top-selling console in the country this year.

Nintendo held a 73 percent share of console sales in Canada last month. During September, the company sold 115,000 units between the Switch, 3DS, and SNES Classic.
