A new report from SuperData, according to GamesIndustry.biz, reveals the Nintendo Switch has surpassed 1.5 million units sold worldwide. Their numbers show that the US nabbed 500,000 consoles; Japan followed with 360,000; 85,000 units sold in the UK; and France claimed 110,000.
Of those lucky buyers, 89 percent bought the Switch edition of Breath of the Wild.
These figures reflect just the Switch’s first week. Nintendo hoped to sell around 2-million consoles by April 1, and their target now seems well within reach. SuperData further implies the numbers may be even higher: their calculations are based on total sold to the consumer, excluding those units “sold in” to retailers.
Hot on the hype train are Nintendo’s first-party favorites, with critically adored Breath of the Wild at the helm and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe boarding in next month. Switch sales are sure to maintain their marvelous momentum as ever more titles launch to the world.
