Nintendo Switch Becomes Fastest-Selling System In Nintendo History

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sold over 1.3 million units.

Nintendo Switch's early sales surpassed all other consoles in the company's history, at least as far as the U.S. is concerned.

Some fans speculated that this could mean that Overkill might be working to fix the game now so that it would not have the same issues when Nintendo Switch version arrives. In fact, it sold 906,000 units in just 28 days since its sale in North America. Nintendo Switch dock will be priced at $89.99 and will include the dock, AC adapter, and an HDMI cable. Those sales are surprising considering no other Nintendo console has reached that scale. When it launched in late 2006, Nintendo reported that it had shipped 3.19 million units for the quarter ending December 31.

Newly unsealed documents have revealed more about the days before Prince's death, including his struggle with opioid addiction. He wrapped with an emotional " Purple Rain " and earned cheers and a standing ovation from those watching him on screen.

That said, Breath of the Wild is the fastest selling Nintendo launch game of all time. Per SuperData's projections, Switch will shift over 7.2 million consoles in 2017, putting it over halfway toward the Wii U's total install base that took four-plus years to accumulate.

Switch, the new-age home gaming console system offering additional mobility convenience to user who can easily carry it on the go, has emerged as the fastest-selling video game system in Nintendo's history. Nintendo at least admits that they are having supply problems, partly because they didn't expect the Switch to sell this fast.

Over 1.3m copies of the game were sold across United States retail in March with 925k units on Switch and 460k on Wii U. According to the NPD Group, Breath of the Wild sold over 925,000 units for the Nintendo Switch - that's more copies of the game sold than consoles owned, which is a bit freaky. However the company did note that they will be available in "limited quantities", so we guess gamers will have to most fast if they hope to secure them before they are sold out. Do you think Nintendo's newest console will be successful as the Wii had been? Roughly 460,000 copies of the Wii U version of the game were sold in March, and the Switch version sold an estimated 925,000 units.
