The Switch had a very good first month this past March. The system sold 906 000 units, which breaks all previous records for Nintendo, including those set by the Wii for tis launch.

As well, Zelda: Breath of the Wild sold 1.3 Million copies on Switch. This is an accurate number, as Zelda sold more copies on Switch than units of the system were sold. This is due to people buying multiple versions, including the master edition. Also,  this launch was during March, which is a nontraditional month for console launches, and that makes this all the more noteworthy.

Nintendo released a statement

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 is working to make sure everyone who wants a system is able to buy one, and more systems are continually being shipped.”

Reggie Fils-Ame also released a statement

“Nintendo always strives to offer consumers something fun, new and different. 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.”

The full financial details will be revealed on April 27.
