Nintendo Switch is the fastest-selling console in Nintendo history

More than 906,000 units sold in the US during first month of release

Posted on

Nintendo Switch has sold faster in its launch month than any other video game system in Nintendo history, the company has announced.

The Nintendo Switch system sold more than 906,000 units in March, according to the NPD Group, which tracks video game sales in the United States. That makes Nintendo Switch one of the fastest-selling video game systems of all time. This sales surge was accomplished in a nontraditional month for a console launch.

“Nintendo always strives to offer consumers something fun, new and different,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America’s President and COO. “With its various play modes and the innovative features of the Joy-Con controllers, Nintendo Switch provides unique experiences that people can take with them anywhere and share with anyone.”

While Nintendo Switch sales are off to a record-breaking start, shipments have not yet been able to keep up with such high demand. Nintendo says it is working to make sure that more systems are continually being shipped.

The Nintendo Switch console launched on March 3, 2017 at a suggested retail price of $299.99 USD / $399.99 CDN.
