The Nintendo Switch Did Well In It’s First Month


The Nintendo Switch has been out for over a month now worldwide, and the newest Nintendo console has done well since launch. According to Nintendo of America, the Switch sold 906,000 units here in North America, making it the fastest selling console in Nintendo history. Pretty good, right?

These numbers have already outperformed the previous console, the Wii U, which sold roughly half in the same time frame.

During the same time, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sold 925,000 copies and sold half of that on the Wii U, with 460,000 copies. In case you missed it, Breath of the Wild sold more copies on Nintendo Switch than Nintendo sold Switch consoles.
