Switch Sales Exceeds Expectations, Thanks To Game Titles
According to CNBC, Nintendo Switch may have hit the jackpot regarding the sale with its new hybrid console with the help of several game titles especially the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The game is getting praise on reviews and is generating a lot of attention in the Nintendo Switch. "Breath of the Wild is being heralded as one of the best games of the year already," Ward said an interview.
Ward suspected that the Zelda game launch title is one of the key reasons why the first week of Switch sales have been very strong. The Breath of the Wild has earned a rating of 98 percent on Metacritic and is currently the fourth highest-rated game title of all time. Metacritic aggregates not just game titles but also the tv show, music, and movie reviews from the leading critics.
