The Nintendo Switch, now going to be six years old, remains a seemingly relentless force in the gaming world. The console achieved more than a million sales last November, making it the best-selling video game for the period.

The lead in November 2021 also marks another important milestone for Nintendo. Switch has managed to sell more than other consoles on 35 of the last 36 consecutive months. In other words, in the last three years, the Switch just didn’t sell more than the PlayStation and Xbox in a single month. Data are from the NPD Group and refer to the US market.
“With an extensive library of games and three options to choose from between the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Switch Lite and Nintendo Switch OLED, the Nintendo Switch family of systems offers something for everyone this holiday season. and for Nintendo Switch’s sixth year, the system continues to see strong demand.” – declared Doug Bowser, current leader of Nintendo for the US.
It is worth noting that the month of November is one of the most important for any product to declare itself in the lead, as it is one of the hottest periods in sales. It’s the month in which Black Friday happens, for example, when Switch also came out ahead, with 550 thousand units sold only in this range of promotions.
