Nintendo Switch sales smashed it over Christmas
Nintendo bossed the Christmas sales season with an impressive set of hardware and software sales – but this still wasn’t enough for the company to meet its own ambitious targets.
Switch hardware sales were up almost 20 per cent year-on-year, game sales were up 100 per cent year-on-year, and all of Nintendo’s new releases were hits.
Super Mario Party has now sold 5.3m copies, Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee notched up a combined 10m copies, while Super Smash Bros. Ultimate sold a whopping 12.08m just in its first month.
