The Nintendo Switch is becoming a hot item worldwide. We’ve heard its successes in North America and Europe, but now it’s Australia and New Zealand’s turn.
Vooks got an official statement from Nintendo and they said: “We can confirm that, across Australia and New Zealand combined, Nintendo Switch sold more in its launch weekend than any other Nintendo hardware in history.”
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild also had the biggest weekend launch sales of any Zelda game in history in those two countries. The game even exceeded launch sales of Wii Sports, which is amazing since that game was packaged in with the Wii console.
It’s safe to assume the Switch will be more successful than the Wii U. The poor old Wii U came out with little fanfare and didn’t have a launch title as strong as Breath of the Wild. Hopefully Nintendo can keep up the momentum.
