Nintendo Switch is the fastest-selling Nintendo console in European history

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo Switch is the fastest-selling Nintendo console in European history

So after US, Switch become fastest-selling Nintendo console in European history also.

 

Nintendo of Europe says that Nintendo Switch sold more in its launch weekend than any other Nintendo hardware in history.

What's more, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the biggest-selling Nintendo launch title ever in Europe - beating the previous record holder Wii Sports (which was bundled with the hardware).

The firm points out that this was achieved during a 'traditionally quiet time for the games industry'.

Apparently everything went as expected for nintendo, let's see if they can keep this going. They need a new direct soon, to announce what's next



Hooray, now lets see if it has decent legs. Id love to see the numbers tho, Mr president of NoE



This is really good news.



someone will say that 'traditionally quiet time for the games industry' is just a spin and is bad because Atari sold more in January of 1985


OP: I'm really surprised. In USA was safe bet (to sell better than Wii U al least), but Europe? Congrats to NS (and Zelda)

great news for Nintendo then. I'm surprised honestly because there didn't seem to be much buzz around for it

all down to having a great launch game, that can paper over other cracks it seems



Releasing a rushed unfinished console with a legion ready to defend it has its perks I guess.
