Nintendo Switch sales have topped 15 million units in North America, according to the platform holder’s internal sales figures.
The rate of adoption is growing too, Nintendo says, with Switch hardware sales through September 2019 up over 20% year-to-date.
Nintendo says 14 Switch games have sold more than one million copies in North America since the system launched in March 2017, with four topping six million sales: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
“As we enter our third holiday season, Nintendo Switch is creating smiles and enjoying broad appeal,” said Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser. “And this holiday, we are bringing Nintendo Switch owners even more fresh and unique entertainment experiences.”
The platform holder also said last week that Nintendo Switch sales have surpassed 10 million units in Europe.
It said in July that global Switch sales were approaching 37 million units and that it expected to sell 18 million Switch units during the current financial year ending in March 2020. Should it achieve that target, the system would surpass lifetime sales of the SNES (49.1 million units).
A limited edition Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield Switch Lite console will also be released in November.
