The Nintendo Switch was the best-selling console in France last year, surpassing 1.25 million units sold.
According to Philippe Lavoué, general manager of Nintendo France, the console's lifetime sales in the country have now reached 3.3 million, exceeding expectations by over 300,000.
Speaking with French publication Le Figaro, Lavoué also revealed that the Switch Lite was the third best-selling console in France, ahead of the Xbox One.
"We have managed to pass this sensitive phase where you have to convince a wider audience than your fans to buy your product, something that had not happened with the Wii U," he said.
Around half of French Switch owners are young adults, while the other half are families; the Switch is also very popular among women, who represent around 30% of Switch owners.
Nintendo's strong performance in France last year is also reflected in its game sales; one in two physical games sold in the country were Nintendo titles, and eight of the top ten best-selling games were from Nintendo.
