Switch

Switch secured another milestone today stemming from Nintendo’s latest financial results. At a total of 84.59 million units, it has now outsold the Game Boy Advance. The GBA’s total sits at 81.51 million units.

Earlier this year, it was confirmed that Switch sales had surpassed those of the 3DS. The console has also outsold the Wii U, GameCube, N64, SNES, and NES.

There’s a chance that Switch could end up as Nintendo’s best-selling platform of all time. Wii (101.63 million), Game Boy (118.69) million, and DS (154.02 million) are currently ahead. However, Switch sales have not slowed down at all since launching in March 2017.

Based on the latest sales from the UK, Switch was the best-selling console during the month of April. Although sales are actually down year-over-year, it’s still performing very well.

GamesIndustry’s Christopher Dring says that sales trends puts Switch “on par with Xbox 360, which over time went on to do 9 million units in the UK.” Only the DS and PS2 sold more.

Also worth mentioning is that New Pokemon Snap was the best-selling game in the UK in April. That feat was accomplished in just two days. On Sunday, we heard that physical launch sales were four times higher than the original.

A number of high-profile Switch games currently lack release dates. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, Bayonetta 3, Metroid Prime 4, and Shin Megami Tensei V are all on the horizon, but there’s no word on when they’ll be available.

There’s an interesting bit of news concerning these titles stemming from the Epic vs. Apple trial.
