March 2017 NPD: Nintendo Switch sales surpass 906000 in the U.S.


"While Nintendo Switch sales are off to a record-breaking start, shipments have not yet been able to keep up with such high demand", the company said in a press release.

Nintendo has enjoyed some early success with their new console called the Switch, with its sales being much more impressive than the ill-fated Wii U's launch sales were.

It has been revealed that the Switch is Nintendo's fastest-selling console in the USA ever, which puts it ahead of some very successful consoles from the company. There were 925,000 units sold for Nintendo Switch and almost 460,000 units sold for the Wii U console.

Nintendo will provide a full accounting of worldwide Nintendo Switch sales, as well as other financial information, during its fiscal-year earnings release on April 27.
