And this is before the Labo.
Whether or not the Labo propels Nintendo’s Switch into the stratosphere as Nintendo so clearly seems to hope it will remains to be seen, but right now, it seems like their hybrid console is doing pretty damn well for itself. We already know it’s the fastest selling system of all time in the US, and in Spain, and also Italy and France, and that it is outpacing even the PS2 in Japan.
Now, we also know that it is outpacing the Wii in Germany. Nintendo has confirmed that the Switch has sold 600,000 units in Germany since launch, which makes it their fastest selling system there, ever. This pretty much confirms that the Switch is, at this point, doing fantastically well in every major territory except for the UK- where it’s doing okay, but not great.
Whether or not the Switch maintains its- you know what, you get it. It’s clear it’s going to maintain its momentum at this point. Let’s see how it does that.
