Nintendo Switch Great Comeback Story: Fastest Seller in Nintendo History

Nintendo is also aggressively pushing for including more games on the Nintendo Switch to attract more buyers which could lead to more sales in coming months.

The company was also successful in having record sales of other games.

Of course, there is no discounting the success The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has brought to the Switch, as there were over 1 million copies of the hugely popular and highly received title, which had a 100% attachment rate with the console. The game sold about 460,000 units for the Wii U, and 925,000 for the Switch.

The iconic game company sold 906,000 Switch consoles in the U.S.in March, making it the fastest-selling Nintendo game system in history and one of the fastest-selling game consoles of all time. That's quite the feat-the Switch is a new type of console, most consoles debut in the holiday season, and the biggest hurdle to selling even more Switch units appears to be Nintendo's ability to manufacture the device.

Nintendo recently revealed that their launch game for the Nintendo Switch, "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" actually outsold the console it was exclusive to.

The term "system seller" gets thrown around a lot in video games to describe a game that's good enough to justify buying a new console practically on its own. As for the game Breath of the Wild, it has scored nearly flawless reviews.

Nintendo declined to comment on sales outside of the US, saying in a statement that it "is working to make sure everyone who wants a system is able to buy one, and more systems are continually being shipped". They include Mario World, Mario Kart, ARMS, Minecraft, and Splatoon 2.

While the numbers above only represent sales in the United States, Nintendo has said that more details about the console's worldwide performance will be made available in its fiscal year earnings report later this month.

This has created the odd situation where there have been more copies of that game sold than there are consoles to play it on. More than a few gamers have purchased Zelda: Breath of the Wild on Switch simply because they can't find a Switch console in stores.
