The Switch continues to perform well for Nintendo during its second year on the market.

NIntendo announced that as of December 31, 2018, the console has sold a total of 32.27 million units.

The Switch launched in March, 2017, and has hit a number of milestones since then.

It was the best-selling console of 2018, both in unit and dollar sales.

Over Thanksgiving weekend, the Switch became the best-selling Nintendo console in US history for the period.

The console’s sales have surpassed the Wii U’s 13.56 million, but it still has a way to go to catch up to the 3DS’ 74.84 million, and the Wii’s staggering 101.63 million.

Even the PS4 has yet to match the Wii’s numbers, with 86.1 million units shipped (not sold) at the end of October, 2018.

Nintendo also released the sales data on its software, revealing that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is now the fastest-selling home console title ever for the company.
