What You Need to Know:
- This news should come as no surprise for anything who's been following Nintendo since the release of their hybrid console back in March of last year. Since then, the console has skyrocketed to success surpassing that of the PlayStation 2 in Japan as the best selling console in Nintnedo's history. Now it seems that same trend has traveled to the US as now Nintendo's hit console has become the fastest selling home console of all time!
- A strong library of games continues to fuel momentum for Nintendo Switch. In the U.S., more than 60 percent of Nintendo Switch owners have Super Mario Odyssey, and over 55 percent own The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. More than 300 games created by third-party developers have already launched for Nintendo Switch. These include big-name brands like FIFA 18 from Electronic Arts, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle and Just Dance 2018 from Ubisoft, Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition from Mojang, L.A. Noire from Rockstar Games among a pletora of others.
- Nintendo Switch has also received strong support from indie developers, with a steady stream of favorites like SteamWorld Dig 2 from Image & Form, Golf Story from Sidebar Games, Overcooked Special Edition from Team17 Digital Ltd and Stardew Valley from Chucklefish LTD.
- 2018 is looking even hotter as Nintendo Switch owners can look forward to Nintendo-published games like Kirby Star Allies, Bayonetta, Bayonetta 2 and a new game starring Yoshi. Fans can also expect continued support from major publishers such as EA, Activision, Ubisoft, Capcom, SEGA, Take 2 and Bethesda, plus a growing catalog of quality content from indie developers

As I said last year, this is a resurgence for Nintendo. They took a hard hit with the Wii U but now they're right back on track.
Not only are they back on track, they've blown everyone else off that track and have taken a huge lead! This is incredible stuff for Nintendo! Congrats!
