Nintendo Switch Is Nintendo’s Most Successful European Launch Ever

Alongside The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which is now their most successful launch game ever.

Posted By | On 08th, Mar. 2017

The Switch is officially a hit- at this point that’s clear. We’ve received numbers for Japan, North America, France, and the UK, and now Nintendo of Europe has chipped in to let us know (via GamesIndustry.biz) that the Switch was officially their most successful hardware launch ever. This beats out hit platforms like Wii, DS, 3DS, and Gameboy Advance, among other things.

That’s not all, either- the superlative The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is Nintendo’s most successful launch game in Europe, ever. This is not only more than previous great launch titles like Super Mario 64, but also more than Wii Sports, which was bundled with the Wii. Clearly, the game has struck a chord with people.

This is an amazing launch for Nintendo, and it is a great start for this new system. It is also an excellent rebound after the dismal performance the Wii U put up. Hopefully Nintendo can continue along these lines going forward.
