By achieving October’s sales numbers, the Switch retains its place as the best-selling video game console for the 23rd month in a row. NPD says that’s the longest streak for any console since it started tracking sales numbers. Sounds like Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s President, believes the trend will continue for the rest of the holiday shopping season. He said in a statement:
“Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite continue to provide one-of-a-kind gaming experiences on the TV or on the go, allowing holiday shoppers the choice of a video game system that matches their lifestyle. Seeing encouraging sales growth like this in the fourth October of Nintendo Switch proves to us that the system has many more years and great games yet to come.”
The Switch system’s November sales could be aided by a bundle Nintendo is releasing for Black Friday. Starting on November 22nd, the gaming giant will sell a Switch bundle with a download code for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and a 3-month individual Switch Online subscription for $300.
