Nintendo Switch, 'Zelda Breath Of The Wild' Race Each Other To The Million Units Point
Nintendo Switch is undoubtedly the best-selling console to date and is a life-saver for the company after the Wii U's flop. The console has been on the market for only a month but it is already looking to break the million units point. At the same time, a game intended for Nintendo's home-and-mobile game device, Zelda Breath of the Wild, has sold more copies than its partner console.
CNNTech writes that Nintendo Switch sold over 906,000 units in the first month of launch in the U.S. alone. The company cited data from NPD Group, an industry tracker. This number proves that the console is a blockbuster hit. However, it still has a long way to go to break the record of its sibling console, the original Wii, which sold more than 100 million units. The news outlet also attributes the success so far of the console to a game tied with it: Zelda Breath of the Wild.
The Nintendo Switch game sold more copies than the console itself, IGN notes. To date, 925,000 units of Zelda Breath of the Wild has been sold by different retailers. Furthermore, the new version of Link's adventures also sold 460,000 units for another Nintendo console, the Wii U. The record number of units sold for the Zelda game is also due to the fact that many players purchased a limited edition as well as a normal version.
There are also more games joining Zelda Breath of the Wild on Nintendo Switch. The Japanese company announced 12 upcoming games for 2017. This includes Payday 2, Sonic Forces, Fate/Extella, ARMS and Splatoon 2. The last two games are already set to launch on June 16 and July 21, respectively. Furthermore, the company also revealed a new color for their controllers as well as the availability of docks in stores.
