The Switch overtakes the 3DS in Japan, is now the third highest-grossing console of all time

Nintendo has overtaken itself in Japan. More specifically, overall sales of the Nintendo Switch have now surpassed those of the Nintendo 3DS.

This makes the switch the third most successful console of all time in Japan.

Nintendo here, Nintendo there

As the Famitsu reports that the Switch has now sold 25 million units in Japan.

She’s on course for a new record, but there’s still a long way to go to the top. The two most successful consoles in the country are also from Nintendo.

More on the subject:

As analyst Ahmad notes, the Nintendo DS tops the list with 32.9 million sales, followed closely by the Game Boy with 32.4 million.

So there’s still some distance between these two systems and the Switch, but it seems far from impossible for Nintendo’s current console to take the top spot.

The best-selling Switch game in Japan is Animal Crossing: New Horizons (7.26 million), followed by Super Smash Bros Ultimate (4.89 million) and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (4.66 million).
