As of the latest Famitsu sales numbers, the Nintendo Switch family of systems has surpassed 14 million units sold in Japan alone. That may not seem like a huge number from a global perspective, but consider this: The über-successful PlayStation 4 family of systems have lifetime sales of just over 9 million in the region. Furthermore, the Switch’s current JP lifetime sales have already surpassed half of the 3DS’ lifetime JP sales as well.

The Switch has long been considered a massive success and sales juggernaut, but seeing the speed at which it’s overtaking its contemporaries — especially in its home territory — never ceases to impress.
