The Nintendo Switch is available globally now. The hybrid platform was released back in March of 2017, and the platform has since been selling exceptionally well. As revealed by Nintendo, more than 92.87 million Switch units have been sold worldwide as of September 2021. This doesn’t include sales numbers for the recently released new Switch OLED model, which launched on October 8. As reported last month, the Switch family experienced its strongest October sales to date.

With growth of 136% when compared to the same month in 2019, the Nintendo Switch family of systems saw its strongest October sales yet, with more than 735,000 units sold between Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite in the U.S. According to numbers provided by NPD, the October 2020 sales of Nintendo Switch are the second-highest October sales of any video game console in history, only outdone by the 807,000 units sold of the Wii system in October 2008.

“Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite continue to provide one-of-a-kind gaming experiences on the TV or on the go, allowing holiday shoppers the choice of a video game system that matches their lifestyle,” said Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser. “Seeing encouraging sales growth like this in the fourth October of Nintendo Switch proves to us that the system has many more years and great games yet to come.”
