Nintendo's first Switch sales numbers are out

20 Апреля, 2017, 11:17 | Author: Leticia Walters

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. The news outlet also attributes the success so far of the console to a game tied with it: Zelda Breath of the Wild.

Nintendo says the Switch is its fastest-selling console in history - besting the Wii and the Super Nintendo, among others.

Based on these figures, SuperData projects that Nintendo Switch will have 7.2 million units sold in 2017, which is considerably higher than original forecast (5 millions in 2017).

A player of "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" recently made an impossible stunt that made fans in awe of his feat, which can be seen in a video that can be viewed down below. This could possibly be due to collectors purchasing two copies of the game so they can keep one sealed, customers buying the game while the console is out of stock, hoping to grab a console as soon as possible, or simply an error in the imprecise nature of the sales tracking. The Nintendo Switch console goes on sale today and retails for 300 dollars.

Either way, it's an impressive first month of sales for Nintendo's new console; whether the long-time Japanese game console maker can sustain that momentum is another question altogether. That means Nintendo sold more copies of Breath of the Wild for the Switch than it sold of the Switch console itself. Saying the Switch and its flagship game have gotten off to a good start would be an understatement. With the launch of "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe" in April and "Splatoon 2" this July, there are some major exclusive games for the Switch on the horizon. Once they start launching, I suspect, more consumers will get interested in the Nintendo Switch.
