Nintendo has revealed more information about its sales performance in the United States last month for Switch as well as Metroid Dread.

Yesterday, it was reported that Nintendo’s console was the best-selling system in the industry for October for both units and dollars. Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser confirmed to The Verge that the Switch family of systems sold 710,000 units, and 314,000 of those were for the new OLED model.

NPD has shared information about the debut of Metroid Dread in the United States, revealing that the game is off to a fantastic start.

According to today’s report, the Switch title had the highest launch month sales of any Metroid franchise release in tracked history. Launch month dollar sales nearly doubled those of the previous franchise best, Metroid Prime. And keep in mind that this only applies to physical data – Nintendo doesn’t report digital, so it almost certainly did even better than that.

According to this month’s NPD report, Switch was the best-selling hardware platform of October 2021 in the United States. That goes for both unit and dollar sales.

Switch is the best-selling hardware platform of 2021 thus far when it comes to unit sales. PlayStation 5 leads in dollars, though keep in mind that Sony’s console is more expensive.

The June 2021 NPD report was published today, and it also concludes the first half of 2021 gaming sales in the US.

It’s safe to say that Switch has had a great few months so far. Nintendo’s console was the best-selling hardware platform during the first half of 2021, and that goes for both both dollar and unit sales.

In June specifically, Xbox Series was actually the best-selling hardware platform in dollar sales. However, Switch was on top for unit sales.

Mario Golf: Super Rush debuted on the NPD charts at #3. We now have some additional insight into the game’s performance.

It’s  confirmed that launch month dollar sales for Mario Golf: Super Rush were the highest ever for a Mario Golf game. Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour, which came to GameCube in July 2003, held the record previously.

On another software note, it’s worth noting that the Switch version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 moved the game back into the NPD charts. It went from #51 in May to #17 in June.
