Ninty has followed up on Microsoft's revelation that Switch was the best-selling video games console in the USA last month, confirming it shifted 1.5 million hardware units during December 2017. We already know that the Switch was the best selling hardware in December followed by the Xbox One, and now Nintendo has confirmed that Switch sold 1.5 million units in December alone.

Nintendo consoles continue to fly off the shelves. If you've ever wondered why Nintendo refuses to give up on the 3DS now that the more capable Switch is on the scene, well, there you go. The Switch has also gone on to become the fastest-selling console in US history.

Nintendo has announced its Switch sales figures through December 2017, and surprise-the console did very well.

All current versions of the 3DS (including 2DS) moved over 750,000 units altogether, which made it the best December for the line in four years since 2014. It is setting new sales record for Nintendo which should prove to be good news for them after the lackluster sale of the Nintendo Wii U.

Ahead of the release of the monthly USA sales report from the NPD Group, Nintendo issued a press statement today confirming that more than 2.6m units of hardware were sold in December across Switch, the 3DS family, and the Super Nintendo Classic Mini.

Nintendo's positively received titles that have come out in the past 9 months no doubt had a big effect on the large amount of units sold. Additionally, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon for Nintendo 3DS finished No. 13 and No. 14, respectively.
