The Nintendo Switch has become the sixth-best selling console in Japan.
Reportedly, Nintendo's flagship hardware has sold 19.4 million units in its home country.
In 2020, Nintendo's hardware accounted for 87 per cent of console sales in Japan.
However, it is still behind the PSP, PlayStation 2, 3DS, GameBoy and Nintendo DS.
It is projected to surpass PlayStation Portable and PS2 sales later this year.
As for the top two performing consoles in Japan, the GameBoy and DS boast 32.5 million and 33 million sales, respectively.
It is worth noting that when considering global lifetime sales, the Switch has already outsold the 3DS, which was permanently shelved in September 2020.
Undoubtedly, the Nintendo Switch will surpass Japanese sales of the handheld console someday. However, it will have a tougher time reaching the heights of the GameBoy and DS.
