Nintendo Switch Sells 2.74 Million Units in Under a Month

Sales of launch title mini-game compilation 1-2 Switch were not disclosed, however. The flagship Switch game, "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild", actually did better than the console itself, with 2.76 million units sold, according to the company. This is why no one can find one. The NPD Group, which is responsible for tracking the video game system sales, argued that Nintendo sold about 906,000 copies this March in the US.

In terms of other games Breath Of The Wild has also shipped 1.08 million copies on the Wii U, making for a grand total of 3.84 million. Overall Switch software volume was 5.46 million units for March, says Nintendo.

And because - unlike Sony and Microsoft - Nintendo relies on games and consoles for nearly all its sales, it is arguably more vulnerable to this trend.

It is not just Nintendo which is upbeat about the Switch; Morgan Stanley also feels that the Switch has a lot of room to grow and is "insufficiently priced into the stock".

Coming to the 3DS, game sales were still very strong with a stunning total of 55.08 million 3DS games sold.

Nintendo's forecast continues to maintain a positive perspective, in marked contrast to its previous home console, the Wii U.

Friend behind bars says Hernandez hinted he might kill himself
Army said his client could be released as early as February. " These are malicious leaks used to tarnish somebody who is dead ". In other developments, a MA judge scheduled arguments on a request to vacate Hernandez's conviction in the Lloyd case.

One such bet is with the company's mobile games, Super Mario Run and Fire Emblem.

Nintendo's current plans call for another 10 million Switch to be shipped in the next 12 months, which would nearly bring it to the entire lifetime sales of the Wii U - which stands at 13.6 million.

On Thursday, Nintendo's fiscal year to March net profit came in at 102.6 billion yen ($921 million), compared with 16.5 billion yen a year ago.

Nintendo's latest earnings report for the end of the fiscal year (March 31) has revealed that both the new Nintendo Switch console and its games have hit the ground running with some impressive figures. Contrast with the current fiscal year's operating profit of 29.4 billion yen.

That shouldn't surprise you - great new entries in major franchises tend to sell well, and to even help sell the hardware they're made to be played on. Though this is an increase, we'll see how well it fairs as time passes and the Switch sells more and more.

The first official sales data for Nintendo Switch is now available, as the Japanese company announced its final quarter results.
