Nintendo sets record with new game console

Nintendo sets record with new game console

One of the announcements that arrived today via Nintendo Direct was the launch date of Minecraft Nintendo Switch Edition, which will arrive digitally on May 11 and later in physical version but its date is unknown. A report by the NPD Group reveals that the Switch was the top-selling console in the United States during its launch month of March.

The new device sold 906,000 units in North America during March, according to industry researcher NPD Group. This makes it the fastest selling Nintendo console of all time, though it doesn't take the crown from Sony's PS4.

It is confirmed that more than nine-hundred thousand units of Nintendo Switch was sold last month.

You didn't read that wrong: there were more copies of Breath of the Wild sold on Switch than there were Switches themselves. The Wii U's best-selling Zelda game, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, sold roughly 2.11 million copies between September 2013 and December 2016.

According to Nintendo Everything, there was more than a 102% attachment rate between Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and the Nintendo Switch, with some gamers buying additional copies of the game even when they didn't own the system.

Nintendo will reveal a "full accounting of worldwide Nintendo Switch" sales during the company's next earnings briefing, which is scheduled for April 27.

It will be interesting to see if the Switch can keep the momentum going, especially after Nintendo is able to increase supply to keep up with demand. The game company was proud of this achievement as these two items broke sales records in western shores. For instance, the company expects to launch the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe game, which contains several new additions than any other Mario Kart game in the series history, on Switch by April 28. The game console manufacturer was proud to say that the console is one of the fastest-selling video game systems of all time. Additionally, ARMS will be released on June 16 for the Switch and Splatoon will arrive on July 21.
