Nintendo Switch Had A Big Black Friday, Setting New Records In US

30 November, 2018, 02:20 | Author: Lynette Payne
  • Nintendo Switch Cyber Monday

The 3DS has now sold 22 million units in North America, the NES Classic has sold 2 million, and the SNES Classic has sold 2.5 million.

Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday are behind us, gamers need to know - which console "won" the Thanksgiving weekend battle?

As reported by Nintendo, the Switch became the best-selling Nintendo console in US history over that five-day period, with holiday sales increasing by 115 percent on 2017. Adobe Analytics reported that the Switch was one of the top-selling products across all categories during last weekend's shopping extravaganza. That includes Switch, 3DS products, the NES and Super NES Classic systems, and accessories and games.

Super Mario Party surpassed 1 million units sold in the US, becoming the fastest-selling game in the Mario Party series and the fifth million-selling first-party Nintendo Switch title joining The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey and Splatoon 2.

Trump Rallies in MS for Embattled Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith
Hyde-Smith remarked that she would go to a "public hanging," a comment she said was made in jest and eventually apologized for. President Donald Trump is heading to MS for two rallies to try to keep a Senate seat in Republican hands.

Still, the current Switch sales number is nothing to scoff at. Nintendo expects 20 million units sold for the Switch for the current fiscal year, which ends in March 2019.

It's time to get your hands on a Nintendo Switch from Amazon.ca, because you can get a Nintendo Switch Console with a $50.00 Nintendo eShop Code for just $329.95 (regularly $379.99) with free shipping, for a total savings of $50.00! We don't have a definitive answer to that question just yet, but it certainly seems like Nintendo made out like bandits!

And because they're pricey, if you have Prime, you'll get your gorgeous new system tomorrow. So the core concept, something that you could take with you anywhere, anytime, was really compelling.

It's shaping up to be a bountiful holiday season for Nintendo. And next month, it will launch its biggest title of the year, Super Smash Bros. Are you surprised by the amount of Let's Go games being sold?
