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.”
