According to other sources, the upcoming fighting game will be the one and only major first-party released title for the new Nintendo console other than the "1-2-Switch" game. Nintendo at least admits that they are having supply problems, partly because they didn't expect the Switch to sell this fast.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the most successful and popular video games to ever come out on both Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo Switch.


According to a recent statement by Nintendo, the newly released Nintendo Switch is the fastest selling console in history for the company.

Nintendo has recently offered concrete numbers about how strong their sales were for the latest "Legend of Zelda" game and the Nintendo Switch.


A research firm, the NPD Group, tracks the USA gaming industry suggested that the game company sold more of its popular games for the Switch than the units of hardware itself.

Over 1.3m copies of the game were sold across USA retail in March with 925k units on Switch and 460k on Wii U.


What do you think about a smaller version of the Switch? However the company did note that they will be available in "limited quantities", so we guess gamers will have to most fast if they hope to secure them before they are sold out. Or it may be attributed to imprecise data collection methods, or a continued shortage of Nintendo Switch consoles. "With its various play modes and the innovative features of the Joy-Con controllers, Nintendo Switch provides unique experiences that people can take with them anywhere and share with anyone". The mobile unit with display rest in a Nintendo Switch console connected to your TV. It's also the last game to debut on the Nintendo Wii U as well. It's highly likely that one of these projects is Darksiders Warmastered for Nintendo Switch. If Nintendo keeps this up, the Switch is poised to become successful, especially with future Mario and Pokémon titles that'll inevitably be released on the hybrid.
