Following today’s Media Create report, it has been revealed that Nintendo Switch sales in Japan have now passed 1.5 million units sold. This news comes ahead of the Switch turning 6 months old on 3rd September.
The Switch sold 69,654 units last week, which means that this bumps the total up to 1,527,962 units as of Monday, 27th August. The surge in sales could be partly to do with the launch of the Switch remastered Monster Hunter XX, as this franchise does very well in Japan. The recent release of Splatoon 2 may have also helped sales in recent weeks.
This is a big achievement for the console, but only time will tell if these numbers will continue to rise at a steady pace. However, with even more big titles being launched in the coming months, such as Pokken Tournament DX, Fire Emblem Warriors, and Super Mario Odyssey, the sales will surely get another boost.
