Just a week ahead of its official one year release anniversary, news has emerged that the Nintendo Switch has crossed a significant sales milestone in France- the console has sold 1 million units in the territory. It managed this feat in under a year, which also makes it the fastest selling console in France in history- tracking well ahead of the PS4 and Wii, which are the two other fastest selling consoles of all time in the country.
This should come as a surprise to no one- continental Europe has always been a strong territory for Nintendo, with France being their strongest territory there of the entire lot, and the system has been doing remarkably well there since its release.
The question for now is whether or not the Switch will maintain this pace of sales going forward, though for now, two months into 2018, it seems to be showing no signs of slowing down.
