Nintendo Boasts #1 Game And Console Sold In April 2017

Posted by May 17, 2017 Comment

Nintendo sent out a press release this morning ahead of their Nintendo Direct presentation happening this afternoon, announcing that the Nintendo Switch was the best selling console for April 2017 and that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe claimed the #1 spot on the video games seller list for the month as well.


Citing a report from the NPD Group, who track video game sales in the United States, the Switch (280k units) and the 3DS (68k units)  made up over half the consoles sold in the country during April, making Nintendo the biggest seller in hardware last month. That made Nintendo the biggest seller of games and hardware two months straight. Let’s see how the company fairs in May now that the buzz has worn off.
