Nintendo has sent out a press release confirming that its new console, called Nintendo Switch, has sold faster in its launch month more than any other gaming console in the company’s history. Based on data provided by the NPD Group which tracks video game sales in the United States, Nintendo writes in its press release that it sold more than 906,000 units of the Nintendo Switch in the United States last month.
Nintendo claims that selling 906,000 units in the month of March makes the Nintendo Switch one of the fastest-selling video game systems of all time. It notes that this sales surge has been accomplished in a month that’s nontraditional for a console launch.
The company also points out in the press release that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game has sold more than 1.3 million units, this includes a total of more than 925,000 units sold for the Switch and almost 460,000 units sold for the Wii U.
It acknowledges that this means that Nintendo sold more of this game for the Nintendo Switch than it sold Nintendo Switch units which give it an attach rate of more than 100 percent.
The company adds that it’s going to provide a full accounting of worldwide Nintendo Switch sales, alongside other financial information, will be revealed on April 27th.
