Switch sells 906000 units in March in the U

The company told IGN, "Throughout April, NOA territories will receive the last shipments of Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition systems for this year". If the console can reach this goal, it will also reach half of Wii U sales during its lifetime (13.56 million units). The Nintendo Switch console goes on sale today and retails for 300 dollars. Switch and Wii U owners are likely still fully immersed in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, so that should be enough to keep you occupied.

Yesterday it was announced that the Nintendo Switch outsold both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One for the month of March, and was the fastest selling console for Nintendo!

Of course, that's not without some help.

Sales of "Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" on the Switch topped 925,000, actually outstripping sales for the new console. These individuals could have factored into the game's over-100% attach rate with the Switch.

Yes, you read that right.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wind surely helped sell some system, and Nintendo confirmed that it sold 1.3 million million copies of that game.

While Griezmann may have netted from the spot in the first leg, he had squandered his four previous penalties taken during play. Atletico coach Diego Simeone lamented his side's inability to kill the tie, but lauded Leicester's defensive effort.

“Nintendo always strives to offer consumers something fun, new and different, ” said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of Americas President and COO.

The Switch's future is looking good.

The question is whether these sales will continue, as the Wii U petered out fairly fast.

The "Switch Mini" would be created to appeal to children specifically, with the analysts pointing out the existing console's size and weight not being entirely suitable for youngsters. We can also expect to see a brief update on the console's roster of indie games - or Nindies, as they insist on calling them - plus news on some upcoming 3DS titles. 925,000 units come from the Nintendo Switch version and almost 460,000 units from the Wii U version.

Thoughts about the Switch's sales figures? No real details were provided on whether or not the Switch version will differ in any way or provide local multiplayer support with multiple Switch units - but you'd hope that was on the cards. Feel free to sound off in the comments section below!
