Nintendo has published their latest financial earnings report, which reveals some updated sales figures for the Nintendo Switch.
According to the report, the Switch sold 12.53 million units between April and September 2020, bringing its lifetime sales to around 68.3 million units in total. This means that the Switch is now Nintendo’s second best selling home console ever, overtaking the NES’ lifetime sales of 61.91 million. Of the 68.3 million figure, the original Switch model accounts for 57.93 million while the Switch Lite accounts for 10.36 million.
You can check out a comparison in the table below:
Console Hardware Sales (Million) Software Sales (Million) Wii 101.63 921.85 Nintendo Switch 68.30 456.49 NES 61.91 500.01 SNES 49.10 379.06 Nintendo 64 32.93 224.97 GameCube 21.74 208.57 Wii U 13.56 103.27
The table above also shows that Switch software sales have reached 456.49 million units, which is quite close to surpassing the NES’ 500.01 million figure. Even so, the hybrid console is still far from reaching the sales numbers achieved by the Wii, which sits comfortably at the top of the list with 101.63 million hardware sales and 921.85 million software sales.
