Nintendo may have a hit on their hands in the Nintendo Switch. According to GamesIndustry.Biz, the big N has sold 1.5 million Switch consoles. Broken down from the first week, 500,000 consoles were sold in the US, 360,000 were sold in Japan, 85,000 units were sold in the UK while France managed 110,000. The rest is presumed to be sold throughout the rest of Europe.

These numbers were gathered by SuperData which was provided the figures from Famitsu and GfK to total up the sales numbers in each region. It should also be noted that these numbers are given for the total sales to customers rather than the number shipped to retailers. Nintendo had planned to sell 2 million units by the end of March and if first week sales are any indication, Nintendo might not only meet that expectation, but beat it.

SuperData has also said Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has sold 1.3 million copies of the game for the Switch and these numbers do not include the Wii U version of the game. This accounts for 89% of Switch owners.
