Recently released information has already impressed us that Nintendo had a successful week in the retail store – a new one Pokémon games were supposedly the fourth most bought goods on a black Friday and the switch was the best-selling console on Monday Cyber - but now we have another confirmation in the form of particularly impressive milestones achieved by the company.
Nintendo has confirmed that the switch has become the best-selling console in the history of the United States over the five-day period from Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday, even surpassing sales of the ridiculously popular Wii console that dominated the retail space ten years ago. In addition, a large number of sales also means that the switch has just experienced its best selling week in the US.
According to Nintendo's internal sales data, US customers spent more than $ 250 million on Nintendo's products during this period, proving that the recent comments of Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime about the importance of holidays are really real. This amount corresponds to the sale of Switch, 3DS, NES and SNES Classic and Games and Accessories.
Interestingly, despite the second year Switch, which looked a little extravagant in terms of new games and exciting developments than its first, overall hardware sales in the region recorded an increase of 45% during the Thanksgiving Day to the Cyber Monday 2018 compared to the same terms are 2017. We expect the sale of the switch console to have recorded a significant increase in the last week, and it will be interesting to see updated unit sales in a few months; perhaps Nintendo could eventually close the 20 million target year?
Do you, or someone you know, pick up all the goodies associated with Nintendo during the sale? Do you think this success will continue throughout the holidays? Let us know with a comment.
