Nintendo Sold More Zelda Switch Copies Than Switch Consoles

Nintendo Sold More Zelda Switch Copies Than Switch Consoles

The company also pointed out that March is a "nontraditional month" for a new console release.

Nintendo has revealed that the Switch sold 906,000 in its 28 days on sale in North America according to the NPD Group. This was in large part due to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, itself becoming Nintendo's fastest-selling launch title, and fastest-selling game in the series. The Nintendo Switch outsold both PS4, and Xbox One. That's a pretty good situation for Nintendo to be in as they hang their hopes on making the Switch the success that the Wii U failed to be. The game sold over 1,3 million units during the month of March.

The only answer for more copies of Zelda being sold than units of the Switch is fans are buying gear and games before they buy the Switch. You might notice that number is a great deal more than the number of Switches sold.

Browns zero in on No. 1 pick, trade for veteran QB unlikely
We feel really good about having effectively two draft classes through the first two rounds and sitting at No. 65, as well. Trubisky, who stands at just over 6-foot-2 and weighs in at 222 pounds, ran a 4.67 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine.

It's also worth noting that the Wii U launched in November, the most popular month for platform sales, while Switch came out during the relatively quiet early March. The company acknowledged that "shipments have not yet been able to keep up with such high demand", and said that more systems are "continually being shipped". Where its long-term game stands has yet to be seen, as it's still working to make the system readily available to buyers interested in it. The Nintendo Switch is sold out at nearly every store, with Ebay having the only inventory. 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. Competition on Nintendo Switch gets even hotter heading into summer, with the release of the ARMS game on June 16 and the Splatoon 2 game on July 21.

Nichols also added that they are excited to share more about their plans for the Xbox One. "Looking ahead, we are excited to share more about our plans for Xbox One, including launching the world's most powerful console - Project Scorpio - alongside an unbelievable lineup of new Xbox One games".
