A new report by Japanese publication Famitsu (translated by NeoGAF) has revealed that the Nintendo Switch has surpassed 1 million units sold in Japan. By hitting 1,016,473 units sold in 17 weeks, it’s managed to beat out the Wii U’s time in achieving that mark, which is 34 weeks.

Further comparisons by GAF indicated that it beat out the PS3 (36 weeks) and PS4 (49 weeks) as well. Interestingly, it’s only four weeks ahead of the 3DS, which took 13 weeks. Famitsu also noted that the top five best-selling games for the Switch in Japan so far are Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (501,614), The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (60,480), 1-2-Switch (200,807), ARMS (154,845) and Super Bomberman R (92,112).
