Nintendo hopes to sell another 400,000 Switch units in France this year

Two weeks ago, we reported on the success of the Switch in France. Nearly 400,000 units of Nintendo’s newest system had been sold there at that point. It seems like Nintendo has some high expectations for the rest of the year as well – in an interview with Le Monde, Philippe Lavoué, general director of Nintendo France has stated that Nintendo hopes to sell another 400,000 Switch units in the next ten weeks in France. It’s an ambitious goal, but with France traditionally being Nintendo’s strongest market in Europe and the release of Super Mario Odyssey today, it’s certainly possible.
Lavoué also shared the sales figures of the two best-selling Switch games in France so far: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has sold 280,000 copies while Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has been sold 260,000 times.
