"Overall, total US hardware sales for Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday increased 45 percent over the same period in 2017", explained the console maker.

Do keep in mind that this result is limited exclusively to online retail and e-commerce, so it's by no means a final judgement on whether the Switch will be the most successful console of the Thanksgiving holiday period. Year-over year, sales of the console over those five days were up by 115%.

Nintendo sold over $250 million in 3DS and Switch products over the five-day Thanksgiving holiday.

From turkey day into Cyber Monday, Switch became the best-selling Nintendo console in U.S. history for the period - beating historic Wii system sales.

Meanwhile, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which initially came out back in March 2017 alongside the Switch hardware itself, also perked up, finding a 38th place spot on the charts and increasing 111 percent.

And the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition system surpassed lifetime sales of 2 million. This includes the recently released Pokémon: Lets Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Lets Go, Eevee! games, as well as the upcoming Super Smash Bros.

If you've been eyeing up a new Nintendo Switch bundle, VR headset, snowboard, or Apple Watch Series 4 - but missed out on the Cyber Monday price drops earlier this week, this is the ideal chance to knock down the price tag. As far as lifetime sales are concerned, the Switch has reached more than 8.2 million sales since its launch past year. These links leave Siliconera.
