Nintendo Switch had the single-best week in sales history over the Thanksgiving week in the US.

Switch and Switch Lite systems sold a combined total of over 830,000 units in the US over the holiday week.

According to Nintendo’s internal data, this was the single best week of US sales.

The company attributed the sales milestone to the recently released Lite system and a variety of Black Friday offers.

These latest figures bring total sales of the console in the Americas to 17.5 million units.
