United States of ZDR.
Recently, Doug Bowser of Nintendo America was interviewed by The Washington Post. During the interview, Doug revealed that Metroid Dread had sold 854,000 copies and went on to say that it was the “best launch of a Metroid game in series history.”
Doug also revealed that the Nintendo Switch had sold 711,000 Switch consoles in October with 314,000 of them being the new Nintendo Switch OLED model. The strong sales helped the Switch return to the top spot of being the highest selling console of the month.
The Switch did have a 33-month long record of being in the top spot for the US until the PS5 eventually put an end to the record run of the Switch. However, it seems that it was only a mere blip and the Nintendo Switch has regained pole position once again.
We have a short excerpt of The Washington Post’s article below but if you would like to see the full article you can find it on Their website.
Nintendo continues to insist that the Switch will “redefine the console life cycle,” and now says it is at its “midpoint.”
It’s a heady ambition as the machine enters its fifth year on the market, but sales still aren’t slowing down. Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser told The Washington Post that the company sold 711,000 Switch consoles in the U.S. during October, with 314,000 of those being the recently released OLED model, which boasts a new screen.
There’s some good news for Metroid fans, too: “Metroid Dread” sold 854,000 copies in October, which Bowser said is the best launch in series history. That Nintendo is proud enough to announce these numbers bodes well for the franchise, which has had a shaky sales history.
