Nintendo Switch had the biggest sales week ever in North America

The console sold in record numbers over the US Thanksgiving weekend

Posted on

Over Thanksgiving week (Nov. 24 to Nov. 30 2019), the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite systems sold a combined total of more than 830,000 units in the U.S., according to internal data. This ranks as the single best week of U.S. sales in Nintendo Switch history.

While exact numbers were not provided, the console also sold in record numbers across Canada. Total sales of Nintendo Switch in the Americas have reached 17.5 million units.

These results were bolstered in part by the recently introduced Nintendo Switch Lite system and a variety of Black Friday offers, such as a Nintendo Switch bundle that included Mario Kart 8 Deluxe game.

The Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield games have now sold a combined total of more than 3 million in the Americas. Other Nintendo Switch games also passed new life-to-date sales milestones in the Americas, including Mario Kart 8 Deluxe at 8.5 million, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate at 8 million, Super Mario Odyssey at 6.5 million and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe at 1.5 million.
