In addition to this lovely sales number, is the number of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild units sold, at 925,000.

It is confirmed that more than nine-hundred thousand units of Nintendo Switch was sold last month. Switch's numbers, nevertheless, are great considering its a handheld console. Analysts predict the Switch has not only met Nintendo's original target, but exceeded it by 300,000 units.

Some people have also noted that when purchasing the Nintendo Switch bundles they're receiving the guide books, extra controller and a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild but not the system. Then again, 460,000 people in the United States picked up a copy of Breath of the Wild for the Wii U, which seems like a better move if you simply can't wait for Switch hardware.

The Nintendo Switch sold 906,000 SKUs in North America, while the remaining stock of their 2 million SKU supply was split between Japan, Europe and Australia. 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.
