After having an incredible year, the Nintendo Switch is showing no signs of slowing down. After just ten months, the console has sold 4.8 million units in the United States, according to Nintendo’s internal figures. These numbers were no doubt boosted by a busy holiday season, and they have pushed the Nintendo Switch to be the fastest selling home console in US history.

With quite an exciting 2017 behind it, Nintendo has a lot to live up to in 2018. Only time will tell how great this year will be, but with plenty more games on the horizon, I’m not too worried.
