Nintendo Switch Breaks Record to Become Fastest-Selling Console in the US

Nintendo breaks own record previously held by the Wii

News Switch Nintendo

The Nintendo Switch has been dominating the sales chart, thanks to some incredibly strong exclusives that prove you don’t need sheer graphic power to be the best. Nintendo announced that they have broken their own record for fastest selling console in the US by shipping over 4.8 million Switch consoles in only 10 months. The sales number easily beats the previous record held by the Wii, which sold four million units in 10 months.

The Switch has had a strong backing from third party developers porting their games over to the new system; however, Nintendo’s first party titles have absolutely dominated the Switch sales chart. The highly regarded titles Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild have been top sellers for Nintendo, and the company has several new Switch exclusives on the horizon.
