The company announced today that it sold 735,000 Switch consoles in the United States in October, according to industry-tracking firm The NPD Group. That is up 136% year-over-year. And it’s the second-best October for any gaming hardware behind only the 807,000 Wiis that Nintendo sold in October 2008.
The Switch numbers are absolutely bonkers. We’re talking Wii peak numbers here, with little risk of falling off a cliff like Wii did. It’s a monster of a platform.
