According to analyst Mat Piscatella from market research company NPD, physical software sales for the Switch in the United States “are on pace to be the biggest ever for a Nintendo platform launch year since ’95, by a fairly large margin.” Considering that sales only started being tracked in 1995, this shows that the Switch and its software sales are performing better than Nintendo could have hoped.
