Recent images have given us the impression that Nintendo has a successful week at retail – the new Pokémon The game was sold on the Black Friday and the best selling console on Cyber, but now we have further confirmed the very impressive milestones reached by the company.
Nintendo has confirmed that the Switch became the best-selling console in US history for the five-day period from Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday, even surpassing the sales of the ridiculously popular Wii console which dominated the retail space around a decade ago. The large number of sales also means that the Switch has just the best ever week on sale in the US, too.
According to Nintendo 's internal sales figures, US shoppers spent more than $ 250 million on Nintendo products during the period, proving the Nintendo season of the president was very good. That figure accounts for Sales of Switch, 3DS, NES and SNES Classic editions, and games and accessories.
Interestingly, despite the second year seeming slightly less extravagant in terms of new games and exciting developments than the first, total hardware sales in the region increased by 45% during the Thanksgiving to Cyber period of 2018 compared to the same dates in 2017. We expect that the sales console switch has a significant bump over the last week, and it will be particularly interesting to see updated sales units in a couple of months' time; perhaps Nintendo could close on its 20 million financial year target after all?
Did you, or someone you know, pick up any Nintendo-related goodies during the sales? Do you think success will continue throughout the holiday period? Let us know with a comment.
