Nintendo also noted that combined sales for Switch, 3DS, and SNES Classic Edition were 2.6 million in December, meaning the classic micro console sold roughly 350,000 units. While the Nintendo Switch was initially hard to find online, supply has finally caught up to demand and you can grab a console from online retails like Amazon for $299. Switch was the biggest driver at 1.5m units sold, while the 3DS sold more than 750,000 units for its biggest month since December 2014. Nintendo also stated that since its launch 10 months ago, the Nintendo Switch has sold more than 4.8M units, making it the fastest-selling home console in USA history. That was an increase of 27% compared with December 2016, and it marks the system's best-selling month in the USA since December 2014.

Nintendo has released Switch sales figures for the month of December ahead of tonight's NPD report. For Nintendo, this represents the largest month of hardware sales in the U.S. since December 2010, when the Wii and DS combined for 4.8m units. Collectively, the 3DS has sold more than 21 million units in the U.S. to date.

The Nintendo Switch, 3DS, and SNES Classic totaled 2.6 million units in December 2017, which accounts for more than half of all the hardware sold during the month.
