Nintendo Switch reported a great start that even surpassed the madness associated with the release of the Wii console. Americans tend to buy the console for power, and the latest Zelda title is the most desirable start in the history of the Japanese company.
March 3th on the market debut the latest equipment signed the Nintendo brand, or hybrid Console Switch. It met with a very warm reception from the service industry, and its title starting – The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – announced the best Zelda for years and now it is still the second most valued production in the history of the site Metacritic.
Slowly begin to also reach us information on the sale of a new revolution of “Ninny”. Yesterday we reported on the outcome of a Switch in the British Isles, now came the time for the situation in front of the American. Nick Wingfield – service reporter for The New York Times – conducted a brief conversation with the president of the US branch of Nintendo, Reggie Fils-Aimem. Although the full record is not available, the journalist had already divided up for Twitter most important fact – Nintendo beats own records. Switch during the first two days of presence in the US market because it sold most of all the hardware’s proposals. This is a fact quite surprising if you remember 2006 and loud premiere Wii console, which went not only to die-hard fans of Mario and Zelda, but she was also in the homes of many people niegrających every day.
Unfortunately, Reggie has not shared a reporter any hard numbers, but an appeal to the archives of IGN will give us the information that the Wii sold in the first week of approx. 600 thousand units in the Americas. So you can theorize that a couple of days and also Switch confidently exceeds the line (if it has not already). Continuing our small history lesson – it should be noted that the record sales in recent years continues to be a PlayStation 4, which in the first 24 hours after its release more than a million customers in the United States and Canada.
Among other information, Wingfield also confirmed what I sensed, and so have all the experts – The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the most sought after premier title for the Nintendo in the company’s history. The settlement, of course, are not included in the game added to the equipment for free, as was the case for example. With Wii Sports.
After only five days on the shelves is difficult to say whether Switchowi written a success even close to “grandfather Wii,” which can boast sales of over 100 million units. Although the beginning of the new system is good, it should be remembered that the players necessarily wanting to see a new Zelda, they can use the Wii U, and the switch does not offer yet a large number of games, and especially exclusive titles. However, you can certainly talk about a return to the form of Nintendo.
