It hasn’t taken Nintendo long to counter the sad news of the NES Mini’s discontinuation with some great news of their own. It turns out the Nintendo Switch has become their fastest selling console ever, probably to the surprise of not many.
Selling more than 906,000 units in the United States alone in March, the Switch has sold faster in its launch month than any other video game system in Nintendo history, according to Nintendo’s release.
In a strange twist, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has somehow managed to outsell the console itself, moving 925,000 units on the Switch. That’s an attach rate of 102%, I mean we figured it’d be a system seller but that’s out of control.
