Nintendo has previously said that Switch is its fastest-selling system ever. More information is provided by the NPD Group today.

According to analyst Sam Naji, “Switch had the biggest hardware launch for a Nintendo platform and the second biggest launch for any video game platform since 1995, the time NPD began tracking this category.”

Naji later added:

NPD Group has released a listing of the top twenty best-selling games in the U.S. for the month of March 2017. The results can be found below.

The new versions of LEGO City Undercover launched in the UK last Friday. With two days of sales, it debuted in the eighth position, just behind Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Chart-Track’s individual rankings showed that the Switch version of LEGO City Undercover came out on top. On Nintendo’s console, it was the 14th best-selling game. PS4 and Xbox One followed at #26 and #32 respectively.

Hot on the heels of Nintendo’s announcement that the Switch is their fastest selling console of all time, research firm SuperData estimates that 2.4 million Switch consoles have been sold during the systems first month of release.

Obviously, this is a far larger number than the 906,000 units sold that was announced by the NPD Group yesterday. The research firm behind the 2.4 million estimate, SuperData, collaborated with market researcher Gfk and the Japanese gaming publication Famitsu to come to that figure. To be clear, this figure hasn’t been confirmed by Nintendo.

Additionally, SuperData changes its projected sales of the Switch for 2017. They now estimate that the Switch will sell 7.2 million consoles this year, up from 5 million. The Switch seems to be on the road to overtake the Wii U’s lifetime sales figure of 13.56 million very early, if SuperData’s estimated figures are correct.
