Nintendo has sold over 15 million Switch systems in North America so far

Sales of Nintendo's original Switch system and Switch Lite system totalled over 15 million units since its 2017 launch, the company confirmed today.

These statistics only take into account North American sales, as based on internal data from Nintendo.

Throughout September, Switch sales in this region were up more than 20 percent. According to the NPD Group which tracks game sales across the States, the Nintendo Switch has been the best-selling video game console for 10 months in a row.

Equally impressive are the system's game sales. To date, 14 Nintendo Switch releases have sold over 1 million units - includin Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which each sold over six million units.

“As we enter our third holiday season, Nintendo Switch is creating smiles and enjoying broad appeal, with more than 15 million consumers across North America playing their favorite games whenever and wherever they like,” said Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser.

“And this holiday, we are bringing Nintendo Switch owners even more fresh and unique entertainment experiences, like Ring Fit Adventure, Luigi’s Mansion 3, Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games: Tokyo 2020, adding to the system’s large and diverse library of games.”

Earlier this month it was confirmed that Nintendo Switch sold over 10 million units across Europe, based on both the standard model and the newer Switch Lite version which was released in September.
