Everybody talks about the novelty, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series and the lack of stock, but the platform that has more output is still Nintendo Switch. This was revealed by the Japanese company after announcing that since March 3rd 2017 more than 1,570,000 units of the Nintendo Switch family of consoles have been sold in Spain, according to data provided by the consulting firm GfK.

The Big N also reports that for the second consecutive year, Nintendo Switch is the most sold console in Spain. By December 2019, just over one million Switches had been shipped in our territory, so in one year more than 500,000 additional consoles have been sold. Nintendo adds that its platform has been the most sold during November 2020 and throughout Black Friday, the week during which it registered a market share of 72% of the total number of platforms.

In terms of software, Nintendo states that the Nintendo Switch catalog has six of the ten most sold games in Spain during 2020. All have been distributed by the Japanese company and among them stand out Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which has managed to dispatch more than 26 million units worldwide in half a year, the veteran Mario Kart 8: Deluxe and Super Mario Odyssey, as well as Minecraft Nintendo Switch Edition, Luigi's Mansion 3 and Super Mario 3D: All-Stars.

Nintendo has not revealed the number of units sold for each of these games, only has detailed that in Spain among all the titles belonging to the universe of Mario that are available in Nintendo Switch have been dispatched more than 2.4 million copies. This figure does not include digital sales made through the eShop.

As of September 30, 2020, 68.3 million Nintendo Switch and 456.49 million games had been sold worldwide. If during the current quarter Nintendo Switch manages to match last year's records, when more than 10 million units were sold, the console will have managed in four years to surpass the sales of Nintendo 3DS, a laptop with almost a decade behind it.

Spain is one of the countries that's surprisingly good for Nintendo Switch in term of hardware and software sales.

There were some Nintendo Switch games performed much better in Spain than UK despite being much smaller market in comparison.

Spanish gamers also loved Mario

So it is succeeding like no tomorrow when countless people here declaring it doomed few years ago. Exactly the opposite of Playstation Vita
Monster Hunter betrayal hurts PSVita so much especially in Japan where they could've easily sold the hardware around 10 million units if MH games were announced by capcom.

was just wondering how the Switch was performing in Spain
At least 3 million units is a lock for Nintendo Switch in Spain which is spectacular for Nintendo system.

Germany on the other hand is very price sensitive market in Hardware sales. Nintendo needed to cut the price of Nintendo Switch there in order to give a new momentum for the hardware sales.

The writings were on the wall that every 3rd party are not going to support it, not even Sony’s Naughty Dog. I don’t even know why people were so quick to believe every (obviously) fake rumors of MonHun is coming to Vita.
