Nintendo Switch overtakes 1990s SNES console in sales

Nintendo Switch overtakes 1990s SNES console in sales

The Nintendo Switch has become the company's third best-selling home console, overtaking the old Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES).

In total, more than 52 million Switch consoles have been sold since the device was launched in 2017.

The SNES was introduced in 1990 in Japan and went on to sell 49 million units worldwide.

However, the company has warned the console's production has been affected by the coronavirus outbreak in China.

A Pokemon video game tournament in Hong Kong has already been cancelled following concerns about the spread of the virus.

The launch of the Nintendo Switch was a critical moment in Nintendo's history, following disappointing sales of its predecessor the Wii U.

But it proved popular with gamers, overtaking sales of the Wii U after only 10 months on sale.
