Nintendo switch: Newsround viewers test it out

"The Nintendo Switch is off to a start right now that it could possibly eclipse the Wii", Bright said during a recent interview with Game Rant. "Initial sales on this have been phenomenal".

Nintendo has yet to give a specified number for the sale of Switch console. The console sold more in its launch weekend across New Zealand and Australia combined than any previous Nintendo system in history.

The Wii eventually went on to sell over 100 million units. That provides some useful perspective-it shows that the Switch's launch problems don't stand out when compared to the console's predecessors-but without hard figures it's impossible to figure out how widespread these problems actually are.

Well, if you didn't make it to the pre-order, then you'll be pleased to know that Expressreports that huge game retailer Gamestop will be getting fresh Nintendo Swith stock on their shelves this March 22. The customer enthusiasm and response we have seen so far has been incredible as we continue to sell through our supply of systems.

"We understand that there are millions of people who only already have three or four copies of these games they've bought from Nintendo throughout the years", Toadsly said.

Despite this slight setback, however, Nintendo is reportedly doubling their efforts to produce more Switch units.

Nintendo Switch stock is now in short supply, with Gamestop promising more units arriving for sale at stores later this week. GameStop just announced that a fresh stock of Nintendo Switches will be arriving this week to its brick-and-mortar stores. Stocks will update on GAME, GameStop & Amazon shortly. The more expensive $599.99 Switch bundle is available online at GameStop.com. Hungry for Nintendo Switch footage? This is not to undermine the major power and impact Nintendo has in the gaming industry.

Once again though, people who are planning to purchase the Switch will need to act quickly since the units are not expected to stay on store shelves for long, given how high the demand now is for it.
