Nin­tendo Switch is smash hit

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - NEWS -

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.”
