The Nintendo Switch has set another sales record. It is now the best-selling console in the US during its first 12 months, according to NPD figures.
That means the Switch has sold more in its 12 months in the US than the Wii and PlayStation 4. However, it does not include handhelds, since the Game Boy Advance sold better in its first year.
The Nintendo Switch has sold over 15 million units worldwide, according to VGChartz estimates.
