Nintendo has announced the Switch and Switch Lite have topped 15 million units in North America.
The new figure comes roughly a year and a half since the original Switch release in March of 2017. Switch sales were up 20% year to date through September 2019, and the Switch has been the best-selling home video game console for 10 months in a row, according to NPD Group sales.
“As we enter our third holiday season, Nintendo Switch is creating smiles and enjoying broad appeal, with more than 15 million consumers across North America playing their favorite games whenever and wherever they like,” Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser said in a press release.
He added, “And this holiday, we are bringing Nintendo Switch owners even more fresh and unique entertainment experiences, like Ring Fit Adventure, Luigi’s Mansion 3, Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield, and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games: Tokyo 2020, adding to the system’s large and diverse library of games.”
Switch is available worldwide for $299, while the Switch Lite is available for $199.
