Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Reggie: Switch sales are “unprecedented” for Nintendo

Iwata would be proud of the success of his last project.

Nintendo announced this week that Switch sales have surpassed 10 million units worldwide in its first nine months. For a new system that launched early in the year rather than during the holidays, that’s pretty darn good.

CNET spoke with Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime after hearing about Switch’s big sales. He called Switch’s sales “unprecedented” before adding that its pace “is one of the fastest in our own history and in gaming history.”

Reggie told the site:

“The fact that we reached 10 million units sold on a global basis and we’re not fully through the holidays is unprecedented territory for Nintendo. The pace is one of the fastest in our own history and in gaming history.”

every time somebody comes out and says "Nintendo is still doomed" news stories like this come out just to prove them wrong



Nice news. Now to keep the software output coming. I'm expecting great things for 2018.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

While this is awesome, I want to know how many they shipped for post black friday because I am now seeing them in stock at every store I go to. Though its amazing the overall sales considering there have been zero price reducing bundles.



I mean, if it's "one of" the fastest pace in Nintendo's history then I'd hardly call that unprecedented. Switch has had a fantastic first 9 months. Keep it going.

Yes! Keep on going Nintendo!



Pocky Lover Boy! 

"He called Switch’s sales “unprecedented” before adding that its pace “is one of the fastest in our own history and in gaming history.”"



How is it unprecedented when its not even the fastest selling gaming system?



If it's unprecedented, wouldn't that mean there is no precedent? If it's one of their best-selling that must mean that a precedent has already been established.



unprecedent partnership !!
