The Nintendo Switch (102mm x 239mm x 14mm) is a bit smaller than the Wii U (135mm x 259mm x 23mm). While 460k of these were for Wii U, 925k were for Switch, meaning that the game sold more copies than the console. However, some younger fans have found the console too big and heavy for them, which has led Nintendo to think about making a lighter smaller version.
While the company made a decision to discontinue the NES Mini, a retro console for your favorite titles from the 80s and 90s, the Switch is here to stay.
The record-breaking Nintendo Switch is a hard find online and in stores. ARMS will make its way to Nintendo Switch on June 16th, while the squid shooter sequel fun of Splatoon 2 is coming on July 21st. Other themed Switch docks, Joy-Con controllers and straps will be available at a later date - including a "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" iteration.
The Nintendo Switch games sell for $59.99 like the games for the PS4 and Xbox One. Nintendo's comments that there would be enough Switch consoles in March to satisfy demand turned out to be untrue.
The Official Nintendo Switch website is also offering switch stock and Amazon also looks set to offer it. Amazon is listing the Nintendo Switch units for Pre-purchase at the moment.
Nintendo Switch's portability and HD Rumble provide plenty of pull. The Switch's strong launch performance also carried over to its software, as "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" sold more than 1.3 million units. That's according to a new figure cooked up by research analyst firm Superdata Research.
Citigroup Inc. analysts also predicted that at the time of the Mini Switch launch, the standard variant would have sold around 25 million units, and the Mini Switch could sell more than 6.5 million units within a year of launch.
