The Nintendo Switch was the top console in October in the US, according to those figures.
As of September, Nintendo says it has sold more than 7.63 million of the console worldwide.
Although we don't expect much of a change in momentum for Switch and SNES Classic Mini, Nintendo may be challenged in November by a Black Friday sales surge on PS4 and Xbox One, and perhaps by the Xbox One X.

It has been a great year for Nintendo fans, with the new Switch console as well as a throwback console based on the beloved Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
The Super Mario Odyssey game for Nintendo Switch emerged as the top-selling video game of the month on the NPD sales chart, even though it launched at the end of the month on October 27. That game seemed to drive console sales, and it was the top-seller on NPD's software chart on a per SKU basis (meaning that multiplatform game sales are split up depending on what system they're on).
Nintendo game systems made up two-third of all video game hardware sold in the United States in October, the company announced today citing sales-tracking group NPD. In addition, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild fared well on the charts as well, with 10 and 11 place spots - fairly reasonable considering that the games have been out for a few months.More news: Broad-based rally lifts Toronto stock index and Wall Street higher, loonie up
