The Nintendo Switch is the Fastest Selling Console in Nintendo History

The Nintendo Switch is the Fastest Selling Console in Nintendo History

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. Nintendo will release more colors as the Switch progresses to drum up support for other game launches but to get Switch owners to buy more accessories.

The console sold more than 906,000 units in the USA last month, the Japanese company said, citing data from industry tracker NPD Group.

That's not all, as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has become a huge seller in its own right, with over 1.3 million units sold.

This has been an exciting time for console gaming, with the Switch launching last month and the release of the Xbox Scorpio on the horizon. This means that there were more Breath of the Wild sales than there were Nintendo Switch sales. According to the NPD Group, Breath of the Wild sold over 925,000 units for the Nintendo Switch - that's more copies of the game sold than consoles owned, which is a bit freakish.

Nintendo Co shares jumped as much as four percent after the company said its new Switch console is off to a record-setting pace in the United States since its March 3 debut.

ARMS will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide on June 16th. So it's not that hard to believe Nintendo's boast that it was able to sell more than 906,000 Nintendo Switches in March, as least in the U.S. only.

Given the portable nature of the Nintendo Switch, you'll be able to play it pretty much anywhere you go.

Splatoon is Nintendo's venture into competitive shooters, except instead of spraying bullets at people you're spraying ink at walls.

The Nintendo Switch is selling fast and breaking records at Nintendo.

"Nintendo always strives to offer consumers something fun, new and different", said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America's President and COO. It is possible that a chunk of Nintendo Switch's user base bought two copies of Zelda.
