It’s pretty clear that the Nintendo Switch has been a roaring success at this point, from a critical and commercial perspective. Nintendo has given us an update on the latter angle, revealing that the system has shifted over ten million units since launch just nine months ago in early March. The official press release also confirms more systems will be released in Japan to deal with growing demand over the holidays.

While we’re sure to hear more specifics when Nintendo releases its next fiscal results in early February, it’s an impressive milestone nonetheless. To compare, the Wii U sold around 13.6 million units in its entire lifetime while the GameCube’s 21.74 million is well within reach. It also means the Switch has outsold Sega’s Dreamcast and Saturn.

We’ll be sure to bring more on the Switch’s sales as Nintendo divulges more information.
