Believe it or not, Switch is now two years old. The system debuted around the world on March 3, 2017. As it’s now March 3 in Japan, Switch is celebrating its birthday today.
Right out of the gate, Switch was a hot commodity for Nintendo. The handheld/home console hybrid got off to a stellar start, and each month, saw the release of huge games including Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Total system sales have already surpassed the Wii U and GameCube, and are extremely close to eclipsing the N64.
Despite being just two years old, Switch has provided a ton of fantastic games and memorable experiences. It’s exciting to think about what lies ahead, and we have no doubt that the platform will have a long life ahead of it.
