The Nintendo Switch is the Fastest Selling Console in Nintendo History

Adjust Comment Print

Recently, Nintendo had released a press note saying that the Switch was the fastest seller among the consoles sold by the company.

Nintendo said it sold roughly 906,000 units of the Switch in the USA throughout March. Because of the fast start, SuperData said that it is revising its projected sales figures for 2017 to 7.2 million units sold, up from 5 million. Both of those announcements make up for the lack of any concrete Virtual Console info, which at this stage we should expect to hear more about at E3 ahead of the launch of Nintendo's premium online service. Both of these consoles, however, were released in the holiday season, the traditional release window for consoles.

Now research firm SuperData is coming out with its own predictions regarding Switch, and if their calculations are correct then Nintendo is in for quite the year. Making the console as the fastest selling video game system in Nintendo's history.

Nintendo also reported that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sold 1.5 million copies in the same period of time, with 925,000 of those being of the Switch version of the game. The NPD group has stated that Nintendo has sold 906,000 consoles of the Nintendo Switch during March of this year and this number is for the United States market alone.

Just hours after announcing the discontinuation of the hit NES Classic Edition console, Nintendo is trumpeting record sales of its new Switch video game console.

Fans were left with a bitter aftertaste after Overkill abandon the Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One and Playstation 4 version after releasing it and some fans feel like the same will happen with the Switch as well. The game company was proud of this achievement as these two items broke sales records in western shores. If this data is accurate, Nintendo exceeded its target by 15%, or 300,000 Switch consoles. This makes the Switch the fastest selling console from Nintendo to date, though these numbers are within a "nontraditional month".
