Today Nintendo announced that the Switch has cleared 10 million units sold worldwide; no small feat for the new hardware. Of course, the Switch wouldn’t have sold half as much as that if it’s software lineup wasn’t so appealing, and Reggie Fils-Aime recently shared some information on the sales performance stats of Nintendo’s biggest releases of the year.
Reggie revealed that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe have all been bought by more than 50% of the total Switch userbase. Splatoon 2 has performed quite well, too; it’s been bought by one in every four Switch owners. Here’s what he had to say about these impressive sales:
Typically if you have a title where one out of five owners have bought a game, that’s strong. That helps drive sell-through of the console.
Certainly some strong numbers here, and with the Switch continuing to build momentum, 2018 will surely be a very exciting year for the Big N.
