That's not all, as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has become a huge seller in its own right, with over 1.3 million units sold. GameStop said last month that the game had an "almost one-to-one attach result" with the Switch hardware, and the title sold to about 91 percent of initial Switch owners in France. The console has been on the market for only a month but it is already looking to break the million units point. This number proves that the console is a blockbuster hit. Not to mention: its March launch is highly unusual for a brand-new console, as it's traditional to aim releases for the holiday season. It's sold out at many stores, and Nintendo is struggling to keep up with demand. Both the system and the game's sales numbers are likely a testament to what an incredible launch game-and truly unique Zelda title-Breath of the Wild really is. That's a pretty good situation for Nintendo to be in as they hang their hopes on making the Switch the success that the Wii U failed to be. The Switch is also Nintendo's fastest selling console to date, surpassing all previous records. The Wii U's best-selling Zelda game, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, sold roughly 2.11 million copies between September 2013 and December 2016.
This was all enough to make The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild the fastest-selling Nintendo launch game of all time, as well as the fastest-selling game ever in The Legend of Zelda series.
Bebe to close all 175 stores
Bebe did not immediately return messages from CNNMoney asking whether it plans to go out of business or transition to online-only. Bebe will pay $550,000 for the two groups' services plus 15 percent of what the company grosses from the store equipment sales.
According to Nintendo, these numbers make the Switch one of the fastest-selling video game systems of all time. This is the fifth month in a row that the PS4 has led the Xbox One console in sales within the US. The summer will bring a handful of other games that'll get Switch users excited.
For those that have been waiting anxiously for new Nintendo Switch units to be available, Nintendo's announcement might not be surprising.
