Nintendo Switch currently sells 92.87 million units and is catching the Wii

Nintendo Switch has reached 92.87 million total hardware sales, according to Nintendo’s latest financial report.

Nintendo has revealed that it has shifted 8.28 million consoles between April and September 2021 (of which 6.45 million are original models and 1.82 million are Lite). However, sales are still down year-on-year. Nintendo said, “Animal Crossing released in March 2020: Hardware and software sales declined compared to the same period last year as New Horizons significantly increased hardware and software sales.” Told.

The table below shows Nintendo’s home video game console hardware sales as of September 30, 2021.

console Hardware sales (million) Software sales (million)
Wii 101.63 921.85
Nintendo switch 92.87 681.00
NES 61.91 500.01
SNES 49.10 379.06
Nintendo 64 32.93 224.97
Game cube 21.74 208.57
Wii U 13.56 103.42

As you can see, Switch has sold less than 10 million units, surpassing Nintendo’s most successful home video game console, the Wii. With the new OLED launched last month (and official sales haven’t been reported yet) and the holiday season approaching, there’s no doubt that Switch will continue to take the lead over the coming months.
