Nintendo this week reported that it beat the video game console in the United States during the black Friday sales season.
"According to Nintendo's internal sales figures, strong demand has pushed buyers from Thanksgiving with Nintendo products from the Thanksgiving Day to Cyber Monday, showing the company, showing that Nintendo is for everyone in this holiday season."
These details are significant for some reasons. First of all, this applies only to the United States; Nintendo has not released new sales figures around the world. And secondly, the video did not offer any significant Black Friday offer. This makes Nintendo's new sales milestones even more interesting.
According to Nintendo, consumers in the United States transferred Nintendo's best-selling console to the five-day Black Friday sales period, surpassing the previous entry made by Wii. Also last week in the United States last week was the World Trade Week; Thanksgiving was clearly the highest issue.
The $ 250 million figure applies to all Nintendo products, so not only Switch, but also Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo entertainment system: NES Classic Edition and Super Nintendo entertainment system: Super NES Classic Edition retro consoles and all Nintendo games and accessories. Total U.S. hardware sales Thanksgiving Cyber Monday increased by 45 percent in the same period in 2017, Nintendo says.
So far, Nintendo says it has sold more than 8.2 transition console in the US, although it again refused to provide new sales worldwide. The switching hardware sales increased by 115 percent compared to the same period in 2017, possibly only in the US. Over a five-day holiday period, over 1 million Nintendo games were sold, up 78 percent from 2017.
The sale of the 3DS series of software in the United States reached 22 million, Nintendo says, with two games Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, exceeding 2.2 million units in each.
And Nintendo retro consoles are also well sold: Super Nintendo entertainment system: Super NES Classic Edition has sold more than 2.5 million units to date, but the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition has hit more than 2 million units so far.
