This week Nintendo announced that the Nintendo Switch sold more units in December than any other video game system, according to the NPD Group, but sales for the Nintendo 3DS were also very impressive. Since its launch 10 months ago, Nintendo Switch has sold more than 4.8 million units, making it the fastest-selling home console in US history.

And that's not the only good news for our favorite gaming company, as the 3DS continues to fly off shelves, selling 750,000 units in December 2017.

The Nintendo Switch was the best seller in December for both hardware units and hardware spend, but the PS4 is still at the top of both categories for the full year 2017. Call of Duty WWII leads both December and the full year.

It seems like there may still be some room for the Nintendo 3DS after all.

On the software front, six of the top 20 individual titles of December were Nintendo titles. Additionally, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon for Nintendo 3DS finished No. 13 and No. 14, respectively.
