Nintendo Switch North America Sales Figures Revealed

That total includes more than 925,000 units sold for Nintendo Switch and almost 460,000 units sold for the Wii U console. Citing numbers from NPD (so we're talking North America here), the Switch sold over 906,000 consoles in March, with Breath of the Wild moving 925,000+ copies for Switch and nearly 460,000 for Wii U-also not a bad number, considering that the (roughly ten million) Wii U owners are mostly Nintendo diehards who were likely to buy a Switch anyway.

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.

The Legend Of Zelda BOTW was one of the standout games for the year 2017, and the console which it was released on Nintendo Switch has also enjoyed great success and since its release the console has outsold even the heavyweights PS4 and Xbox One.

Places like NowinStock.com have continually shown that the Nintendo Switch has stayed sold out across the US, and Japan. Early reports suggested that 1.5 million Switch copies were sold in its first week. 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.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is undoubtedly the crown jewel of the Nintendo Switch launch lineup.

"Nintendo always strives to offer consumers something fun, new and different". That said, it's likely this way because a portion of players bought the game before they could get a Switch. This would be helpful as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will launch for the system on April 28, ARMS on June 16 and Splatoon 2 on July 21. If the console can reach this goal, it will also reach half of Wii U sales during its lifetime (13.56 million units). If it plays its cards right, the Switch could become the comeback Nintendo needs.

This new title is a Remastered version of the original Darksiders is a fantastic Action-RPG game. Yellow Joy-Con controllers were also announced and Nintendo Switch docks will be available in stores.
