It is no secret that the Nintendo Switch has succeeded commercially during the first three months of its life cycle, even surpassing Nintendo’s initial expectations for the console. The Switch continues to prove its juggernaut-status, as its sales have even been able to outperform the Wii’s initial release in the United States.
According to GameStop, the Nintendo Switch has sold 1.2 million units in the United States in its first two months, compared to the Wii’s 1.1 million units in that region for its first two months. This is especially impressive considering the Wii launched during the holiday season, while the Switch launched this past March.
