October NPD: Nintendo Switch Top Selling Hardware, SNES Classic Snags #2 Spot

Nintendo is dominating once again.

In October, the Switch was the highest selling gaming hardware. Coming in second was the SNES Classic. Additionally, Nintendo revealed that, across all pieces of their hardware, the company accounted for 2/3 of all sales.

Super Mario Odyssey, which released on October 27, was the highest selling game when taking single platforms into account (the game was the #3 selling overall). Other notable Nintendo titles include Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, coming in at #10, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which grabbed the #11 spot.

It’s safe to say that Nintendo is killing it this holiday season, and they aren’t stopping any time soon.
