Nintendo Switch Ships 2.74M Units, Zelda Rises To 3.84M Shipped


The fastest selling game for Nintendo console was "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" which sold approximately 1.3 million units. (The company had greater supply of the system, due to its holiday launch period.) In its first year, the Wii sold 13.17 million units.

By selling 2.74 million units across the globe, the Nintendo Switch's first-month performance has overshot Nintendo's original sales projection by 740,000 units, or 37%.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild became a tentpole release for Nintendo's newest console, the Switch, offering players the chance to explore and interact with its world like never before. As is the case in many console launches, Nintendo was supply constrained at the Switch's launch.

On the portable front, 3DS game sales were strong, Nintendo said, specifically calling out Pokemon Sun and Moon, which have now combined to sell 15.44 million units. But I believe Nintendo's gamble of releasing the Switch in March has paid off; it will generate impressive sales throughout 2017 with a massive spike during Q4 in the run up to Christmas.

American Airlines gives employees pay raises; Wall Street balks
The raise should put workers on "levels that are equal to the highest rates now in place at either Delta or United ", Parker said. The union employees have been complaining loudly that they are paid less than their counterparts at Delta and United .

That promising start has outpaced Nintendo's own forecast, which had seen the company estimate that they would sell 2 million consoles in the first month.

Nintendo also reported that the 3DS is doing well with 7.27 million in sales.

What explains the Nintendo Switch's strong start amid such a tough climate for consoles?

In the fiscal year that ended in March, Nintendo's profit jumped more than six times from the previous fiscal year to 102.6 billion yen ($924 million), up from 16.5 billion yen. They managed to flog 9.1 million more amiibo figures as well. The worldwide sales volume for the Nintendo 3DS hardware this period was 7.27 million units (7% increase on a year-on-year basis), while the Nintendo 3DS software sales volume reached 55.08 million units (14% increase on a year-on-year basis).

Marissa Mayer will walk away from Yahoo with $186 million
To make matters worse, Verizon threatened they may pull out of the deal as clearly the security measures at Yahoo were subpar. Shareholders will be asked to approve the deal on 8 June and a yes vote will most likely trigger a huge payout for Mayer.

"If the 10 million target is achieved. that means the sales momentum would be close to the Wii". That projected 65 billion yen figure might be higher still, but Nintendo plans to spend heavily on Switch promotion this year, Kimishima told the Journal.

For fiscal 2017, the Japanese company expects an operating profit of around 60 billion yen from 750 billion yen in revenue. We will release Splatoon 2 in July.

Nintendo CEO said repeatedly there are "more unannounced titles" that should boost Switch itself's sales.
