After Nintendo Switch became Japan’s fastest-selling console in history, beating the PlayStation 2. It was Nintendo’s turn in the United States. According to the data provided by Nintendo itself. Its hybrid console would have sold 4.8 million units across the country, making Switch the fastest-selling console in its first ten months, far surpassing Nintendo Wii with 4 million units.
Nintendo Switch becomes the fastest-selling console in the United States
The data is shocking since more than 50% of the owners of the console have Super Mario Odyssey, Zelda: Breath of the Wild or Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. While other titles such as Splatoon 2 have been established in 20% of the consoles sold.
Nintendo knows that 2018 will be very special for its console since it is intended that more than 25 million consoles will be sold. A record that aims to get supported by the successes that are already on sale. And others that will come later as Pokémon and Metroid. While the Third Party support seems to be much more potent in this second year. Because the number of consoles sold grows very fast despite having to compete against Nintendo itself and its releases. That is the best console ever.
