Nintendo's wild Switch fighter Arms is launching June 16th

Nintendo has announced that the new and highly anticipated Splatoon 2 game will be launching on their new Switch console in a few months time on July 21st, 2017. However, we're now getting more news regarding how the console has been doing overall, and it certainly paints a good picture for its success going forward.

Nintendo's hottest new product isn't the Switch, if you look at sales numbers alone for the month of March, it's the new Zelda game that comes bundled with the console, the company revealed.

Nintendo says the Switch is its fastest-selling console in history - besting the Wii and the Super Nintendo, among others.

You didn't read that wrong: there were more copies of Breath of the Wild sold on Switch than there were Switches themselves.

Breath of the Wild, which launched alongside the Switch on March 3, also set internal records at Nintendo. However, this could also be a fallout of questionable sales data or the fact that Switch had a prolonged shortage of retail units since launch.

Note that you can't have face recognition and iris scanning both active at the same time; you have to choose one. The company is also launching the smartphones today in India and the pre-orders will be open starting today.

Both consoles have been criticized for their launch lineups - either for the lackluster number of games offered on the Switch or the lack of a first-party system seller on the Wii U - but the Switch certainly benefitted from one monster game.

The previous record was set by the GameCube, which sold over 660,000 units in the U.S. during the first month it was released in November 2001.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wind surely helped sell some system, and Nintendo confirmed that it sold 1.3 million million copies of that game.

It is confirmed that more than nine-hundred thousand units of Nintendo Switch was sold last month. "With its various play modes and the innovative features of the Joy-Con controllers, Nintendo Switch provides unique experiences that people can take with them anywhere and share with anyone". Granted there is a difference between shipped and sold, but hopefully Nintendo will add some clarity to the issue when it holds its quarterly financial meeting later this month. The Nintendo Switch sold 906,000 SKUs in North America, while the remaining stock of their 2 million SKU supply was split between Japan, Europe and Australia.
