And here are the software charts:

Nintendo has announced results from sales generated between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday, and has set a couple of records in the process.

First up, the company has highlighted a couple of sales records for Switch. It’s now the best-selling console in the U.S. for that five-day period having topped the Wii. It also had the best-selling week ever in the United States.

We previously heard that Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee were some of the top-selling products on Black Friday. Nintendo’s actual console also did very well during the holiday week.

Adobe Digital Insights indicates that Switch was the top-selling product on Thanksgiving. It was the fourth best-seller on Small Business Saturday, and was again in the top five – specifically #3 – for Cyber Monday.

Nintendo has yet to share any official data about its performance during Black Friday week. However, it’s clear that Switch and a number of its games did very well.

Super Mario Odyssey has reached a new milestone in the UK. Propelled by the latest sales coming from Black Friday, the game has surpassed 500,000 copies sold.

Switch only has one other title to hit the same mark, and most would probably be able to guess what it is. Indeed: it’s Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Note that digital sales aren’t included here. If they were, Super Mario Odyssey probably would have surpassed the 500k mark a little while ago.

The week of Black Friday sales has come to an end, and GamesIndustry has an early report on the latest data from the UK.

Last week, several Switch titles saw big increases. Zelda: Breath of the Wild rose the most by 111%. Super Mario Odyssey and Super Mario Party were right behind having increased 110%. Finally, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was up 98%. Along with Black Friday week, new Switch adopters from Pokemon’s release likely played a factor.

Speaking of Pokemon, after their launch week, sales for Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee understandably fell. The two dropped 43% and 55% respectively.

Adobe Analytics tracks e-commerce transactions across 80 of the top 100 US retailers. Today, the company reported early information about Black Friday 2018 sales.

According to Adobe, the top five products purchased online in the United States were Laptops, LOL Surprise dolls and accessories, Fingerlings baby pet toys for kids, God of War on PlayStation 4, and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu / Eevee. CNET further indicates that the new Pokemon games were top-selling products at retail in general during Black Friday.

Pokemon: Let’s Go is already confirmed to have sold over three million copies worldwide in its first three days.

Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu launched last week around the world, including in Japan. In just three days, it sold over 650,000 copies in the country. Sales trackers have since provided additional information on how the games sold.

You may recall that over in the UK, the Pikachu version was significantly more popular than Eevee. But in Japan, the split was pretty close. Dengeki has Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu at 332,193 copies sold and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee at 270,929 units.

According to Media Create, the Pikachu version sold through 62.96% of its initial shipment. Eevee was slightly lower at 51.80%.
