For some reason, the Switch has been achieving quite a few very specific sales milestones in various countries lately. Another one can now be added to the list: Portugal.
It turns out that the market there has taken a strong liking to the Switch, at least when compared to its predecessor, the Wii U. According to a recent report from Portuguese publication Meus Jogos, the Switch has sold 20,000 units in the country as of this month. That’s an incredibly tiny number compared to other regions, but it’s still better than the Wii U. It took that system over four years to hit that number, so it’s a sign of growth for Nintendo’s market performance that the Switch has already achieved that in less than a full year.
Going back to the aforementioned highly-specific list of sales milestones in various countries, Spain, France, Italy, Germany and the U.S have all reported great sales performance for the system so far. Let’s see what other milestones the Switch will hit as the year continues. At this rate, it just might end up being the first system in Antartica to hit 1000 units sold!
