According to a new report from NPD Group, Switch was the best-selling hardware platform of January 2019 in the United States. This is in terms of both dollar and unit sales. Additionally, Switch was the only console platform to show year-on-year sales growth. As a side note, the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller was January’s best-selling accessory with dollar sales increasing 40% year-over-year.

NPD hasn’t shared an official figure confirming how much Switch sold last month. However, based on the aforementioned information, Nintendo should be pleased with how the system is performing.
