Evergreen Nintendo Switch titles have also seen good sales: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe selling over 4 million and 5 million units, respectively.

Since its 2017 launch, the console has sold over 8.7 million units, which is more than the other current gen consoles at the same point in their life cycles.

Nintendo Australia has just announced that Super Smash Bros.

Just this morning Nintendo shared the news with Destructoid that the Switch is the "fastest-selling U.S. console".

The Nintendo Switch console has become the fastest-selling video game system of this hardware generation through 21 months, that's before selling over three million units of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Switch, so it's the ideal time for PDP to launch a line of wired fight pads styled after some of Nintendo's most recognizable characters. 2018 titles such as Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu!, Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee!, and Super Mario Party have helped bolster sales. Nintendo previously reported that the Switch had sold 8.2 million units as of November 26, according to Adobe Analytics. Total sales over the game's first three days were nearly 30 percent higher than for Mario Kart Wii, which ended up shipping more than 37 million copies worldwide. So many games were released a year ago that Nintendo had very little left for afterwards and it wasn't really until Pokémon: Let's Go and Super Smash Bros.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is also the fastest-selling game ever in the Europe eShop, Nintendo said. Nintendo stock hit a five year high of $58.45 a share this year, only to shed more than 40 percent of its value this month, with a year-low of $33.90.

Since the Switch launched three years later than its two rivals it'll never catch up, and so direct comparisons between overall sales are essentially meaningless.
