Over in the UK, the Nintendo Switch has sold 80,000 units during its opening weekend. Nintendo also boasted that Switch sales in the US are doing really well, and over in Japan, it was reported that the Switch managed to sell over 300,000 units during its first week of availability.

Basically it sounds like every market that the console has launched has been successful, and now according to Nintendo, the console appears to be doing really well in Europe as well. While the company did not reveal any numbers, they are saying its sales are breaking records. “We can confirm that, across Europe, Nintendo Switch sold more in its launch weekend than any other Nintendo hardware in history.”

The company goes on to add that one of the Switch’s launch titles, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, is the biggest-selling Nintendo launch title in Europe. “Launch title The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has not only been bestowed with some of the highest review scores in gaming history, it’s also the biggest-selling Nintendo launch title ever in Europe, even outselling Wii Sports in first weekend sales.”

So far reviews of the Switch have been mostly positive. There are some aspects of the console that some feel could be improved upon, but hopefully those will be addressed in future refreshes, but for now gamers seem to be relatively thrilled with Nintendo’s latest efforts.
