The Nintendo Switch has now surpassed the lifetime sales of Sony’s PlayStation 4 in Japan. New numbers from Famtisu (via GI.biz) show that the Swtich has now sold 8.13 million consoles in Japan, which is slightly ahead of the 8.07 million PS4s sold in Japan.

It’s a particularly impressive achievement for the Switch in Japan, as it’s only been on sale for two years compared to the PS4 which has been sold in Japan for five years already.

On a global basis, however, Sony’s PS4 is miles ahead of the Switch. Sony has sold 96.8 million PS4 consoles worldwide, which compares to 34.74 million Switch systems sold globally.

GI.biz points out that portable systems historically perform better in Japan than other parts of the world, which may explain in part why the Switch has done so well there.

Multiple new models of the Nintendo Switch are reportedly in production, though neither will be announced at E3. Additionally, Nintendo is working with Chinese internet giant Tencent to release the Switch in the country. This could potentially be massive for Nintendo, as the number of people who play video games in China is huge.

In other news, Nintendo today announced many more details about the much-anticipated Switch game Super Mario Maker 2.
