The sales data resemble those of the successful Wii.
The company in charge of Nintendo in France has confirmed that Nintendo Switch has sold more than two million consoles in the country, slightly improving the sales forecasts of the Japanese company. Only in 2018, the hybrid console has sold 1.13 million machines in France; a figure that has earned him to become the most popular console of the year.
In an interview with Le Figaro, Philippe Lavoué confirms that in the closing stages of last year, such was the success of Nintendo Switch that 100,000 consoles were sold per week, achieving results similar to those of the popular Wii. If we focus on video games, Nintendo has managed to place some of its great releases among the best-selling titles of 2018.
Always attending to the information of the manager, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the third best-selling game of 2018 in France with sales, last year, of 1.2 million units and Super Mario Party, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Super Mario Odyssey or the latest Super Smash Bros. Ultimate are among the ten best-selling games of the year, with sales that in all these cases would be over 400,000 copies each.
