It’s a good time to be Nintendo, as it has been announced that the Nintendo Switch has now passed another milestone, breaking the 68 million sales mark and the final sales number for the original Nintendo Entertainment System.
The numbers come straight from Nintendo’s latest earnings report. The Switch’s 68.30 million units (comprised of both the original Switch and the Switch Lite) sold puts it over the Nintendo/Famicom, which finished with 61.91 million units sold.
In terms of software, the Switch has sold 456.49 units, largely due to the power of their game line-up, fronted by Animal Crossing: New Horizons, selling over 26 million units in just a little over six months. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is nearing 30 million units sold, while Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is hovering a little over 21.1 million units sold. Super Mario 3D All-Stars has already sold over 5.21 million units.
