Nintendo Switch Becomes Fastest-Selling System In Nintendo History

The sales reveal Zelda has over a 100% attach rate to Switch sales but also shows Zelda sold more copies for the Switch than units of the Switch.

Nintendo has yet to comment on the story and is unlikely to officially announce a different version of hardware as the current Switch continues to fly off of shelves.

The new Nintendo Switch game console is displayed at a pop-up Nintendo venue in Madison Square Park, March 3, 2017 in New York City.

And now we have a number to put to that claim: "The Nintendo Switch system sold more than 906,000 units in March", according to Nintendo.


Nintendo notes that a "full accounting of worldwide Nintendo Switch sales" will be made available on April 27 when it issues its fiscal-year earnings.

Some people have also noted that when purchasing the Nintendo Switch bundles they're receiving the guide books, extra controller and a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild but not the system. The Wii sold 470,000 units in the United States in its launch month of November 2006.

What's more impressive is that Nintendo pulled this fantastic launch during a "nontraditional month", as new consoles are usually released in the months leading up to the holidays.

The company's latest console just became the fastest selling video game system in the U.S.in the company's history.


The company was also successful in having record sales of other games.

The company reasons this is because some bought the limited edition, and a second copy to play.

And now, analysts have predicted Nintendo will be trying to capitalise on the popularity of its latest console with another Switch device in the future.

The Nintendo Switch has been on the market for nearly a month and a half and in that time it has become the fastest selling console in Nintendos history.


Lovers of the Nintendo Switch will have to wait till July 21 for the release of Splatoon 2, better known for being a amusing title in which the objective is to paint the ground with any color and paint everything that you find in your way.
