    The Nintendo Switch was (finally) released last Friday. Many gamers were anticipating the release of the system, and it seems they have put their money where their mouths are. Right now, the Switch is the fastest selling Nintendo console ever in the Americas and Europe. The console/handheld hybrid is also doing great in its home country of Japan (according to Famitsu, as translated by Kotaku).

    Speaking with New York Times reporter Nick Wingfield, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said that initial sales of the Switch (for March 3 and 4) surpassed the first two-day sales of any other system in the company’s history. This is also the case over in Europe. The Switch failed to surpass the first two-day sales of the Wii in Japan, though it did outsell the Wii U in the same time frame.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is also a huge hit. The game is now the best-selling standalone launch title for a Nintendo platform. Fils-Aime didn’t disclose exactly how many units the game sold, but it did outsell Super Mario 64 on the Nintendo 64. Breath of the Wild also did great in Europe, and has managed to outsell (the non-bundled) Wii Sports (according to MCV).

    Below are the string of tweets from NYT reporter Nick Wingfield.







    Things are definitely looking great for the Switch at this time. If Nintendo can manage to produce enough systems and release compelling titles, it should remain a success for the rest of the year. The Switch will no doubt enjoy another bump in popularity (and sales) this fall when Super Mario Odyssey is released.
