The Switch Is Nintendo's Fastest-Selling Console In The US Ever

The Switch Is Nintendo's Fastest-Selling Console In The US Ever

We knew the Nintendo Switch was off to a good start, based on USA sales numbers from March NPD numbers, but now it appear that the young upstart console has broken Nintendo's expectations with more than 2.4 million units sold worldwide.

At least according to Nintendo and NPD Group sales numbers, which show the hybrid handheld-home console sold over 906,000 units in its first month. Nintendo notes that this sales surge was accomplished in a non-traditional month for a console launch.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wind surely helped sell some system, and Nintendo confirmed that it sold 1.3 million million copies of that game. Nintendo President Reggie Fils-Aime also called Breath of the Wild the best standalone launch title in Nintendo history just after the system's U.S. launch. You might notice that number is a great deal more than the number of Switches sold.

You can play the Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild on the go.

The Nintendo Switch is selling fast and breaking records at Nintendo. That means the Wild game for Switch actually sold more than 100 percent as an attach rate with the system.

Nintendo had originally planned on selling only 2 million Nintendo Switch units worldwide for the month of March- but it looks like they may have beaten their own expectations.

If all 16 million Switch units to be produced by the end of its fiscal year will be sold, then the Switch will already become more successful than the Wii U, which only sold a little over 13 million units during its whole lifespan.

Nintendo has finally revealed numbers for the Nintendo Switch - the fastest selling console in Nintendo history.

As Bloomberg reports, financial analysts for Citigroup, Inc. predict the company will launch a smaller version of its Nintendo Switch console in 2019.

Nintendo says the Switch is its fastest-selling console in history - besting the Wii and the Super Nintendo, among others. It plays sort of like a deeper, more intense version of Wii Sports boxing, utilizing the Switch's motion controls to simulate your fists.
