Game sales off to a good start.
The Nintendo Switch has had a fairly strong start worldwide. Along with UK retailers reporting strong sales for the console, MCV (via Nintendo Today) revealed that 137,000 software units were sold during March.
Titles like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (which was the third best-selling overall game in the UK for March), 1-2 Switch and Super Bomberman R were stated as the main software sellers.
Meanwhile, the PS4 – bolstered by releases like Horizon: Zero Dawn, Ghost Recon Wildlands, Nier: Automata and Mass Effect: Andromeda garnered more than 800,000 software sales for March. The Xbox One saw 500,000 software units sold. The fact that the Switch saw such strong sales with virtually no pre-existing is a good sign for now.
Also, it seems that some 50,000 software units were sold on the Wii U, most likely due to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. What are your thoughts on the Switch’s success? Let us know below.
