Nintendo’s utter domination extends to the north, too.
Nintendo has been setting all manner of sales records with the Switch in countries around the world- Japan, the US, France, Spain, Germany. Now, add another one to the list- in Canada, the Nintendo Switch has utterly dominated the gaming market this year. So much so, that it is now the highest selling console of the year in the country so far- in spite of the fact that the PS4 and Xbox One had a two month headstart over it (given the Switch’s launch was in March).
Nintendo in general is having a bumper year up north- the Switch has been the top selling system in the country frequently since launch, including in October when, much like in the US, it topped charts, and, along with the SNES Classic Mini and 3DS, combined to give Nintendo two-thirds of the market.
Of course, the Holiday season is here- and some killer deals on the PS4, the launch of the Xbox One X, and the scarcity of the Switch, might mean that the system loses its lead. But for now, Nintendo can celebrate its quiet victory in the Great White North.
