This week, the Nintendo Switch saw another healthy boost in sales, despite a complete lack of notable releases to boost them (which shows yet again how strong demand is for the console). It sold 108 575 units, which is about 17 000 units more than during Week 40, and nearly doubly what it sold last year during the same week (56 680 units).

The increase impacted only the OG model, as sales for the Lite model were perfectly flat (demand for this particular model seems to have stabilised). Nintendo have started shipping Animal Crossing: New Horizons bundles again, but it looks like they account for a much smaller chunk of sales than expected (sales of the game only increased by 3%).

Year on Year, the gap between 2019 and 2020 is widening, with 4 153 753 units sold this year vs. “only” 2 664 441 units last year after the same amount of weeks. YTD sales now stand at 15 537 184 units, with 2 724 521 units for the Lite model, and 12 812 663 units for the OG model.

As for the Nintendo 3DS, its sales are back in 3 digits territory, with 947 units sold (vs. 1 568 units last week, and 1 041 units last year). YTD sales now stand at 55 371 units (vs. 167 944 units last year), and YTD sales at 24 551 518 units.
