Total Wii sales of 6.3 million units are within reach.

Nintendo's Switch console sold 1.3 million copies in France in 2021, bringing its total to more than 6.1 million sales since its release in March 2017, the video game giant announced on Monday.

“2021 was the second best year for the Switch in France, after the record recorded in 2020”, enthused Philippe Lavoué, general manager of Nintendo France. Nintendo now hopes to exceed 7 million Switches sold in total in 2022 in the country, despite tensions over electronic component supplies that prevent it from producing as many machines as it wants.

On the games side, it was once again the annual edition of the 

Fifa 

football simulation that topped the sales rankings, adding up all the versions released.

The Switch, however, placed nine titles in the Top 10, with both games released in 2021, such as

Pokémon Sparkling Diamond 

and

Pokémon Sparkling Pearl 

which between them exceed 700,000 copies in total, and other older ones like

Animal Crossing : New Horizons

, acclaimed by players during the spring 2020 containment.
