If you’re a fan of redemption stories, then the Nintendo Switch is a good example of one, at least as far as video game consoles are concerned. Nintendo suffered quite a blow to their reputation and financials with the Wii U, but with the Switch, the company is turning things around.


In fact according to the latest stats published by The NPD Group, the Nintendo Switch was actually the best-selling console in the US for the month of August. However it isn’t only in August that the Switch did well for itself as it was shown that the Switch has managed to be the top console in 4 out of the 6 months since it was released earlier this March.

This is actually a huge change from the Wii U in which many felt that it was a failure, with some even predicting that it could be the start of the end for Nintendo. In addition to being the top-selling console in the US, recent stats have also revealed that the Switch has managed to sell as many as 5 million units worldwide, which once again is a difference of night and day as far as the situation with Wii U is concerned.

Nintendo still has quite a few titles that have yet to be launched, like the upcoming Super Mario Odyssey and Super Smash Bros., and let’s not forget that companies such as Bethesda are bringing titles like DOOM, Wolfenstein II, and Skyrim onto the Switch that will no doubt help to attract new players.
