Nintendo Switch is smash hit
Sales of Nintendo’s Switch console have moved past 10 million units in Europe, the gaming giant has revealed.
First released in 2017, the Switch’s hybrid set-up as a mobile device which can also be placed into a dock and used as a home console system helped the Japanese firm return to profitability.
A Lite version of the console, which is a dedicated handheld device, also went on sale in September.
The company said sales this year were up 30% on last year, and 40% on 2017.
Stephan Bole, Nintendo’s European president, said: “The Nintendo Switch family of consoles is being enjoyed by millions of players across Europe, and passing such a major milestone is testament to its broad appeal.”
