Research firm, SuperData, has revealed this week that the global sales numbers for the Nintendo Switch have 2.4 million. This is above Nintendo’s estimated sales for March, which stood at 2 million units.
SuperData has also raised it’s initial year-end sales estimate from 5 million to 7.2 million. This means that the Switch could have sold two thirds of the lifetime Wii U sales in just 10 months.
Nintendo of America earlier this month confirmed 906,000 units were sold, while 925,000 copies of the Switch version of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild had been sold. This has resulted in an attach rate of over 100%. Nintendo of America attributed this to consumers purchasing multiple copies.
Nintendo have scheduled a “full accounting of worldwide Nintendo Switch” sales during the company’s next earnings briefing, which is set for 27th April.
