Nintendo Italy announced sales for the Switch have been "exceptional" in Italy.
The Switch is now the fastest-selling Nintendo console of all time in the country, overtaking the Wii's first ten months on store shelves.
Nintendo Italy General Manager Andrea Persegati stated that sales for the Switch have been satisfying and is confident the success of the console will continue throughout 2018. He mentioned upcoming releases of Kirby Star Allies, Bayonetta 2, Dragon Quest Builders, and a new Yoshi game that will help keep sales high, along with the already released The Legend of Zelda Breath of The Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, ARMS, Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2.
This news comes less than a week after Nintendo of America announced the Switch was the fastest-selling console in the US in its first 10 months having sold 4.8 million units.
