Nintendo is touting NPD data that says that the Switch has sold more than two million units in the U.S. in advance of the system's first holiday season.

The accolades continue as September was the third straight month that the system was the best-selling home console – the fifth time out of seven since its launch. At the end of July, Nintendo said it had sold 4.7 million units worldwide.

In terms of software, the Switch boasts two games in the NPD top 10 software chart for the month: Mario+Rabbids Kingdom Battle at seven and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild at 10. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe came in just outside the top 10 at the 11 spot.

Our Take 
The upcoming holiday season would seem to be the right time for the system to really take off, but that's if supply can keep up with demand.
