The Nintendo Switch’s impressive launch continues apace. It was the only console to experience a boost in sales in Japan following E3, it has been Nintendo’s most successful hardware launch ever, and there are some analysts that are even predicting that it could outsell the all conquering Wii.

The latest piece in this sales figures puzzle is the news that, in France, Nintendo’s acclaimed hybrid device has hit 250,000 units sold already. To put that in perspective, its predecessor the Wii U took over a year to reach a similar figure, so to sell so many in just three-and-a-bit months is seriously impressive. No wonder people are still struggling to find one! Vive la Switch Révolucion!
