The Nintendo Switch has been a success so far for Nintendo, exceeding the company’s expectations and shattering records. It has gone on to have one of the best system launches ever, but how has that affected the retailers selling it.

Bloomberg is reporting that both Target and Best Buy have a experienced a notable surge in business and that is thanks to the Nintendo Switch and its sales.

Best Buy Co. got a boost from Mario and Luigi in the first quarter, as demand for Nintendo Co.’s new Switch game console helped the retailer post a surprise sales gain.

The Switch, which debuted March 3, has emerged as a bright spot in a lackluster retail industry. Last week, Target Corp. said its electronics sales “leapt forward” thanks to the Switch, which it promoted in stores and online. In April, the electronics category overall posted its first monthly gain in almost two years, according to government data cited by RBC Capital Markets.

This is good news for everyone involved, as it shows that Switch can have a positive effect on sellers. This is in direct contrast to the Wii U ( especially in the UK), and therefore bodes well for the Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo did everything right in this situation and now will reap the rewards.

With the new Zelda Wii U bundle on its way, Target is holding a great sale to get the Wii U game collection going! The new Zelda: Wind Waker won’t unfortunately be a part of the deal. Although, you can still pick great games such as Pikmin 3, New Super Mario Bros: U and the new Wonderful 101. Remember, with deals like this Lowest priced game will be free. Might as well shoot for the 3 expensive games for the best savings. Will you be taking advantage of this deal to catch up to same games? If so, let us know in the comments what you will be picking up and why.

The Wii U is already seeing some very positive signs of it’s success. One thing that’s looking really good for the Wii U is it’s pre-order sales. It looks like Nintendo may have another hard to find situation, like it did with the Wii’s release back 2006. Inventory was short and many retailers were left with no stock at all, lines of people would form outside retailers several hours before the store opening, in order to get their hands on a console before the holidays arrived.


Wii U pre-orders have now sold for both Basic and Deluxe models at Best Buy, Toy-R-Us and Target. K-Mart and Sears, which are the part of the same company, have both sold out of the Deluxe version and they never had the Basic model to begin with.

GameStop sold out of the Deluxe bundle, but the white Basic is still available for pre-order at this time.



Wal-Mart
at this point is the only know retailer that still has their inventory in place. Note that Wal-Mart also offers their own version of a Deluxe set, which they call the “Wal-Mart Solution Bundle“. The bundle adds a Wii Remote Plus and a choice of a Wii U game to a system of their choice. The Solution Bundle is $400 for the Basic set or $450 for the Deluxe.
