Yes, 2017 will be marked as the year in which Nintendo returned to the first place after spending complicated moments with Wii U and all thanks to Switch.
The console has been a success in different parts of the world and now we must add its success to the Canadian market, where it is already the best selling console of the year.
According to information from NPD Group, Switch has been the most sold console in Canada during October and remains the best selling of the year, surpassing PS4 and Xbox One in that country.
At the same time, Nintendo’s hardware offering in Canada has been well received by consumers and during October Switch, Nintendo 3DS and SNES Classic Edition systems covered 62% of total hardware sales.
On the other hand, in terms of software, only 4 days were enough for Super Mario Odyssey to be placed as the best-selling game of October in the country of North America.
The presence of Nintendo games in the Canadian market is so successful that the NPD Group determined that 1 out of 4 Canadian dollars spent on video games was for a title distributed by the Japanese company, which reaffirms its leadership as the most important distributor of the year in the country thanks to the fact that it gets 23% of the players’ expenses.
