"Whether you're talking about Nintendo Switch, whether you're talking about Nintendo 2DS, we really do well with that gift-giving occasion". The game is also the fifth million-selling first-party Nintendo Switch game in the United States.

Nintendo revealed on Wednesday that the Nintendo Switch is now the highest-selling console in the company's history during the Thanksgiving-Cyber Monday period (November 22-26), surpassing the sales of the Wii during that same time period in previous years.

Since your console order is fulfilled by Currys PC World, you don't have to worry about all the usual worries around seller feedback, extortionate delivery charges, returns policy, the condition of the device. At the forefront were the Pokemon Let's Go! titles, which continued to add to their growing sales numbers.

Upon launch a year ago, Super Mario Odyssey received plaudits from fans and critics alike, shifting console units and eventually becoming the best-selling Switch release on a global scale, having sold some 12 million copies.

Nintendo sold over $250 million in 3DS and Switch products over the five-day Thanksgiving holiday. Zelda, Mario, and Smash Bros. typically end up dominating players' minds, leaving little room for anything else. That includes Switch, 3DS products, the NES and Super NES Classic systems, and accessories and games.

The SNES Classic Edition system surpassed lifetime sales of 2.5 million.

It's no secret that the holiday season is a big time for everyone in the gaming industry, with Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo offering huge deals on each of their consoles.
