Nintendo Switch Sales Record for Nintendo and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild High-Attach Rate Sales


Nintendo Switch is the fastest selling console in its launch month than any other video game system in Nintendo history. The Nintendo Switch system sold more than 906,000 units  in March, according to the NPD Group, which tracks video game sales in the United States. That makes Nintendo Switch one of the fastest-selling video game systems of all time. 

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game sold over 1.3 million units*. That total includes more than 925,000 units sold for Nintendo Switch and nearly 460,000 units sold for the Wii U console. That means that Nintendo sold more of this game for Nintendo Switch than it sold Nintendo Switch systems, for an attach rate of more than 100 percent.

This was all enough to make The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild the fastest-selling Nintendo launch game of all time, as well as the fastest-selling game ever in The Legend of Zelda series.

This is fantastic new that fans are enjoying their Nintendo Switch system and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Yesterday, Nintendo Direct showcased new games coming to Nintendo Switch which I am excited to play on the go from ports to new gems arriving soon like ARMS and Splatoon 2. If you have the console let me know what games you have been enjoying in the comments below.
