Nintendo sold nearly a million Switches in a single month

Switch-Fastest-Selling-Video-Game-System-Nintendo/">Nintendo had originally planned on selling only 2 million Nintendo Switch units worldwide for the month of March- but it looks like they may have beaten their own expectations. That's a pretty incredible considering they sold more copies of the game itself than systems. In fact, it sold 906,000 units in just 28 days since its sale in North America. So far, Nintendo has released a number of games for the portable gaming console.

"Nintendo is working to make sure everyone who wants a system is able to buy one, and more systems are continually being shipped".

Nintendo also confirmed that Breath of the Wild is its fastest-selling launch title ever in the United States. That is generally true, though there are some exceptions, like the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and the Nintendo Wii U. It seems that Nintendo is making up for lost time and sales with the Nintendo Switch. It's also "one of the fastest-selling video game systems of all time" for any company, Nintendo said.

And the Minnesota History Center is staging a special exhibit of Prince memorabilia, including his iconic " Purple Rain " suit. Prince's home in Minneapolis, Paisley Park , is now hosting a celebration in honor of the musician that runs through April 23.

To put those sales in context: Nintendo said the Wii U sold 13.56 million units worldwide between its November 2012 launch and December 2016; nearly 1 million Switch units have been sold in its first month of availability within the USA alone.

The figure, courtesy of research firm SuperData, tops Nintendo's projection of about 2 million units for the month.

Sony had nothing to say, but but they've managed to outpace the Xbox One five months in a row with the PS4, so that's better than nothing. The numbers come from the NPD Group, which tracks video game sales in the United States.

Jakarta also deleted JP Morgan from its list of primary bond dealers after what was deemed a negative research report . Still, Indonesia has plenty of protectionist trade policies that disadvantage United States exporters, say analysts.

The brand-new Zelda: Breath of the Wild sold a total of 1.3 million units - more than 925,000 of which were specific to the Switch console, leaving 460,000 Wii U versions.

For those that have been waiting anxiously for new Nintendo Switch units to be available, Nintendo's announcement might not be surprising.
