Nintendo Switch sales pass 32 million units

Nintendo Switch

Nintendo has announced that it has sold more than 32.27 million units of the Switch.

Since that figure was correct as of December 31, 2018, it means it has taken the Switch less than two years to approach the lifetime sales of the Nintendo64, which shifted 32.93 million units. So far, 163.61 million Switch games have also been sold.

Nintendo’s latest software sales figures also show that Mario Kart Deluxe has shifted over 15 million units worldwide, closely followed by Super Mario Odyssey with 13.76 million sales and Super Smash Bros Ultimate with 12.08 million.

Last October, The Wall Street Journal suggested that Nintendo is working on an upgraded version of the Switch which, it said, is due for release this summer. In the meantime, the Switch’s success continues apace.
