Nintendo Switch is Nintendo's fastest-selling console

Recently, Nintendo had released a press note saying that the Switch was the fastest seller among the consoles sold by the company. Making the console as the fastest selling video game system in Nintendo's history. Its biggest launch game, The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, has also proved to be a huge money maker for the company.

The Nintendo Switch was officially launched at the start of March, and it's been enjoying quite a fair bit of sales.

NPD Group also tracked the critically-acclaimed game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which sold over 1.3 million units for the Switch and the Wii U combined.

For comparison to Breath of the Wild, Nintendo said back in 2006 that The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, which launched alongside the Wii, sold 454,000 copies in its first week.

In fact, the only console it failed to out-do on launch is the PlayStation 4.

"ARMS" is scheduled to be released on June 16 for the Nintendo Switch.

We also can't discount the possibility that some consumers have gone out looking for a Switch, found it sold out, and soothed themselves by picking up Breath of the Wild while they wait for the system to come back in stock. 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.

The reason for this is that allegedly a lot of people wanted two copies of the game: one as a sealed collector's item and another to play.

Nintendo revealed that they will launch three versions of Link based on models from previous games, including: Majora's Mask, Twilight Princess, and Skyward Sword. “With its various play modes and the innovative features of the Joy-Con controllers, Nintendo Switch provides unique experiences that people can take with them anywhere and share with anyone.”.

According to Joost van Dreunen, CEO of SuperData Research this performance shows many things about the future of Nintendo and the Switch Console.
