The Nintendo Switch is now officially the sixth best-selling video game system of all time in Japan, according to sales data provided by Famitsu (via Video Games Charts).

It's apparently sold 19,410,000 units within this region - meaning it's surpassed the Famicom lifetime sales in Japan. Video Games Charts expects Nintendo's latest-generation system to surpass the PSP (in fifth) by around May, and it's also on track to take out the PlayStation 2 in fourth, and eventually the 3DS in third.

The Game Boy (in second) and the Nintendo DS (first) are still well out in front with more than 30 million sales each.
