The Nintendo Switch was the Best-Selling Console in Canada for the 25th Consecutive Month

The Nintendo Switch was the most sold console in Canada for the month of November achieving the feat for a record-breaking 25th month in a row. The Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite sold a total of 148K units (combined) in the month of November in the North American state as per the NPD Group.

One of the key driving factors behind these metrics was the Black Friday bundle that included a Switch console paired with a game code for Mario Kart 8 (Deluxe Edition), plus three months of Nintendo Switch Online Membership.

We are pleased that fans of all ages throughout Canada are playing Nintendo Switch and enjoying the versatility of the system. Whether it is playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe together or connecting online with friends and family to share island creations in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons game, Nintendo Switch offers something for everyone and we hope it creates many happy memories this holiday season and beyond.

The Switch has sold a whopping 790K units in Canada in 2020 (till now), with one month still left in the fiscal year. In comparison, the 2019 sales were limited to just 162K. This growth can be primarily attributed to the pandemic which has promoted the stay-at-home lifestyle. The shortage of the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles has also indirectly benefited Nintendo as frustrated gamers didn’t have many options to choose from.
