Nintendo Switch: The Fastest Selling Console For Nintendo

On top of the 2.4 million consoles sold worldwide, this report also predicts that there will be an increase in sales for the Nintendo Switch this year, from 5 million to 7.2 million. SuperData noted that it collaborated with market researcher Gfk and the Japanese gaming publication Famitsu to come up with the figure.

The figure, which SuperData notes comes after collaborating with Gfk and Media Create, means the Switch actually is having a shortage- it is clear Nintendo did produce more units than they intended to, but they still sold out, which may be contributing to its perennial shortages.

"Accordingly, we think Nintendo will launch a lighter, dedicated handheld version of the Switch, possibly to be called the Switch Mini". If this data is accurate, Nintendo exceeded its target by 15%, or 300,000 Switch consoles.


The switch sold more than 900,000 units in the US just last month.

The new Nintendo Switch launched on March 3 and as expected, it sold out on launch day.

Though it's too early to say any of this is certain-the Switch has barely been out one month-this would be a very Nintendo move.


In addition to this lovely sales number, is the number of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild units sold, at 925,000. For example, the Nintendo 2DS plays 3DS games and is cheaper but lacks the stereoscopic 3D technology that made the 3DS a hit in the first place.

The Nintendo Switch is a completely new video game concept. The mobile unit slides inside the Switch docking station, where it also gets charged.

According to Citigroup Inc analysts including Minami Munakata, Kota Ezawa and Alicia Yap, the Kyoto-based company may as well release a smaller version of Nintendo Switch in the fiscal year through 2019.


As a plus for Nintendo fans, Minecraft Nintendo Switch Edition will include the Super Mario Mashup Pack, where you can play and explore the classic Super Mario worlds.
