Nintendo has revealed that sales for Nintendo Switch have already passed 7.6 million units worldwide, that’s over half of the Wii U’s lifetime sales worldwide in just 6 months.
The Japanese electronics giant announced the news with the release of its 2nd quarter financial results this pas weekend which revealed that sales for Nintendo Switch had passed 7.6 million worldwide as of September 2017. In comparison, Nintendo’s previous Wii U console has shifted 13.5 million units in its entire lifetime following its launch back in 2012.
In terms of software sales, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild unsurprisingly takes the top spot with almost 5 million units sold, the re-released Mario Kart 8 follows closely behind Zelda with 4.42 million sales and Splatoon 2 currently sits in third spot with 3.61 million units sold.
Of course, Nintendo’s 2nd quarter financial results don’t take into account its latest runaway success – Super Mario Odyssey, which only released last week, but is already looking good for sales figures if UK sales are anything to go by.
