Nintendo has revealed that the Switch family of systems - so the original model and the new Nintendo Switch Lite - have now shifted 10 million units between them across Europe, with hardware sales rising year-on-year.
It's not a bad milestone to have reached as the gaming giant gears up for the holiday season; across the continent, hardware sales in 2019 are almost 30% higher than last year and more than 40% higher than 2017.
Nintendo of Europe President, Stephan Bole, has shared the following in a press release:
“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. European sales of Nintendo Switch hardware and software are growing significantly each year, and existing and new console owners have a wealth of titles to choose from, with plenty more on the way.”
The company has also revealed that European Switch owners have purchased more than 36 million Nintendo-published titles since the console first released in March 2017, with nine Nintendo-published games going on to sell more than a million copies:
Nintendo-published Switch games which have sold more than one million copies in Europe:
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
- Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!

Nintendo has also praised a selection of third-party games including Minecraft, Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, and Stardew Valley, all of which have sold more than half a million copies across Europe.
Not bad at all, huh?
