Switch Switch Lite

In addition to Luigi's Mansion 3 reaching third place on the US software charts in October, Nintendo also experienced another strong month in terms of hardware sales.

While no sales figures were provided, NPD Video Game Industry Analyst Mat Piscatella revealed the Switch was the best-selling hardware platform within this region. It also remains the best-selling platform of 2019 and most-likely experienced a boost in sales due to the release of the Switch Lite during the previous month.

Piscatella noted how the Switch experienced sales gains during October, despite the fact overall hardware spending fell in this month and year-to-date:

October 2019 hardware spending fell 41% vs YA, to $182m. Year-to-date hardware spending has declined 23% vs YA, to $2.1 billion. Nintendo Switch is the only platform with sales gains both in October as well as year to date.
