Payday 2 Gets a Surprise Nintendo Switch Announcement

Since the console's launch last month, the Switch has been almost impossible to find on store shelves, and whenever units come in, they're quickly swiped by fast-acting consumers. Nintendo at least admits that they are having supply problems, partly because they didn't expect the Switch to sell this fast.

According to Nintendo, over 906,000 Switch consoles were sold in the month of March, making it the company's fastest selling console to date.

Nintendo has finally revealed some concrete sales figures for its new hybrid console/handheld, the Nintendo Switch.

That said, Breath of the Wild is the fastest selling Nintendo launch game of all time. Once Nintendo rectifies its Switch supply issues, the game will likely enjoy another surge in sales, as it is now the biggest game in the console's library, and looks to retain that title for the foreseeable future.

While "Breath of the Wild" has sold more copies than the Nintendo Switch, it does not mean that the console did not sell well. Many experts believe that the goal can easily be achieved, as Nintendo has prepared a long line-up of upcoming games such as Splatoon 2, Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and various third-party games. The company told IGN, "Throughout April, NOA territories will receive the last shipments of Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition systems for this year". Do you think Nintendo's newest console will be successful as the Wii had been?

The Nintendo Switch is a completely new video game concept.

"Nintendo always strives to offer consumers something fun, new and different", said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America's President and COO. The quality leap is great when compared to the Nintendo 3DS. Including the launching of the world's most powerful console, the Project Scorpio, alongside an fantastic lineup of new Xbox One games.

Nintendo announced to have sold over 900,000 Switch consoles in March. After which you will then be able to customise them and take selfies with your amiibo pals.
