The Nintendo Switch has been a success for Nintendo as it recently surpassed 50 million units sold worldwide, according to VGChartz estimates

The Nintendo Switch has sold over 3.3 million units in France, according to a report from French website Lefigaro. 1.25 million units were sold in 2019, which was the best-selling year for the console. 1.1 million units were sold in 2018. According to the report around 11 percent of households in France have access to a Switch and roughly 30 percent of owners are women. 

Software sales have also been strong for the Nintendo Switch. Pokémon Sword and Shield has sold 650,000 units since it launched on November 15, 2019, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sold 502,000 units in 2019 and Luigi’s Mansion 3 sold 392,000. Ring Fit Adventure even sold 120,000 units.

Only 30 percent are women? Something tells me a lot of French women are going to buy a Switch for Animal Crossing...

@trunkswd how does this compare to vgchartz tracking for France?

We have Switch lifetime sales in France at 3,353,525 units as of January 4. If they were off I would have made some adjustments.

The yearly 2018 chart has it at about 2.05 million ltd, so it seems basically spot on.

No problem. We we get new hardware sales figures I make adjustments to make sure our figures are as accurate as possible. Besides our Switch figures in France being spot on, our worldwide PS4 figures are also correct.

Looking super strong. For comparations: 3DS was at 2.7 million in the same lifetime, PS4 was at 3.22 million with 4 months of advantage. Let's go Switch!
