Nintendo Switch Sets US Sales Record Over Black Friday Week

Nintendo Switch just had its best week of sales in the US ever, according to the company’s internal records. Nintendo says that the week of Thanksgiving (November 24-30), which includes Black Friday, the Switch and Switch Lite systems sold a combined total of more than 830,000 units in the US. The company also noted that it broke internal Cyber Monday records, though it didn’t give exact figures.

Nintendo credits the impressive figures to the addition of the Switch Lite to the lineup, a wealth of Black Friday offers, and the recently announced Nintendo Switch bundle that includes Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Total Switch sales in the Americas have reached 17.5 million units. Nintendo didn’t note in the announcement if these figures are sell-in (to retailers) or sell-through (to customers).

Software was no slouch during the holiday week either. Pokemon Sword and Shield have now sold a combined total of more than 3 million copies in the Americas, continuing its record-breaking successful launch. Other notable lifetime software sales milestones include Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (8.5 million), Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (8 million), Super Mario Odyssey (6.5 million), and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe (1.5 million).

2019 was a big year for Nintendo Switch as a whole, so check out our Nintendo Switch 2019 Report Card for more detail on how the hybrid console-handheld system made waves this year.
