The Switch has sold over 22 million units

Nintendo has announced that the Switch has sold 22.86 million units worldwide following its release in March of last year.

The figure was confirmed during the Big N's latest financial report, where it also revealed that Switch software has topped 111 million as of September 30. The company now expects to ship 20 million Switch consoles during the period April 1, 2018 – March 31, 2019.
