The Nintendo Switch Did Well At Launch

Good news everyone! The Switch has been a success for Nintendo, coming off strong sales in the first two days of release. How well you ask? Nothing concrete but what do know about this is that it was better than the Wii U’s release.

Nick Wingfield of the New York Times spoke to Reggie Fils-Aime, the president of Nintendo of America and the topic of sales came up between them. According to Fils-Aime, the Nintendo Switch surpassed the Wii in the first two days of sales.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild also did well – the latest Zelda title has gone on to be the “most sold launch game” for Nintendo.
