The Nintendo Switch is showing no signs of slowing down. In October 2020–the month before the Xbox Series X/S and PS5 dropped–the Switch sold a staggering 735,926 systems in the US, Businesswire reports. This figure is split between the hybrid model Nintendo Switch and the portable-only Switch Lite.
This represents a 136% growth on October 2019 sales, with the COVID-19 pandemic and the release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons moving Switch units throughout 2020. Worldwide sales figures of the system, as of September 30, hit 68.3 million units. This new number takes the system’s known total to over 69 million.
The Switch has now been the top-selling system in the US for 23 months in a row.
