Nintendo Switch was Nintendo’s best launch ever, in the Americas

Ricky, 06 March 2017

Nintendo has just announced that this weekend’s console launch was the highest in the company’s history, at least in the Americas.

Additionally, the hybrid console’s launch title The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was the best-selling launch title of any Nintendo console. Next in line for that title is now Super Mario 64 which launched with the Nintendo 64.

Considering the limited number of launch titles for the console, things are off to a good start with the Nintendo Switch. Launch day had plenty of people lining up to buy this $300 tablet/console/handheld gaming machine, not to mention GameStop said it was one of the “strongest and most successful gaming console launches” in recent years.

Not all gamers are lonely basement dwelling males. And there is this thing called moderation and time management. Sad to see that you have a chance to procreate and give to the world more people as closed minded as you.
