Nintendo Switch Sells Big-Time In March

21 April 2017, 02:37 | Marlene Myers

To put those sales in context: Nintendo said the Wii U sold 13.56 million units worldwide between its November 2012 launch and December 2016; nearly 1 million Switch units have been sold in its first month of availability within the US alone. If you ask, why then it may probably because of early shortage of Nintendo Switch consoles, the possibility is that they bought the game while waiting for the restock of the console.

Either way, it's an impressive first month of sales for Nintendo's new console; whether the long-time Japanese game console maker can sustain that momentum is another question altogether. This is considered to be higher than initial expectations and forecast, as SuperData originally believed that the console could sell only about 2 millions.

And now we have a number to put to that claim: "The Nintendo Switch system sold more than 906,000 units in March", according to Nintendo. Nintendo President Reggie Fils-Aime also called Breath of the Wild the best standalone launch title in Nintendo history just after the system's U.S. launch.

The Switch has been burning up the sales charts for Nintendo despite launching at an odd time of year for a new video game console (their fastest-seller ever, according to a Nintendo email), but that's not even the new system's biggest success story. The breakdown of copies between the Switch and Wii U is 925,000 and 460,000 copies respectively. The quality leap is great when compared to the Nintendo 3DS. This is the fifth month in a row that the PS4 has led the Xbox One console in sales within the US.

CNNTech writes that Nintendo Switch sold over 906,000 units in the first month of launch in the US alone. 925,000 units come from the Nintendo Switch version and almost 460,000 units from the Wii U version. Data regarding digital downloads of games and combined physical/digital life-to-date numbers are from Nintendo's internal sales figures.

Nintendo added that shipments of Switch units have not been able to keep up with consumer demand, but that they are "working to make sure everyone who wants a system is able to buy one, and more systems are continually being shipped". Between now and July we've got Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Arms, and Splatoon 2 on their way, while Super Mario Odyssey will offer a major holiday push.
