Leak reveals just how successful Nintendo thinks the Switch will be

Nintendo Switch Sales Numbers 2017

Nintendo was in desperate need of a hit after the company's previous-generation home video game console was an utter disaster. With the Nintendo Switch, it appears as though Nintendo has found that hit. It's obviously far too soon to tell if the Switch can maintain momentum over the long haul, but early signs are outstanding. Nintendo's Wii U successor is in such high demand that the company had to double production. And what's more, those who have managed to get their hands on a Switch already have overwhelmingly positive things to say despite the console's lack of top-tier titles at launch.

So far, it does indeed look like the Switch is a hit. How big a hit remains to be seen, but a new leak suggests that Nintendo is expecting to put up huge sales numbers this year.

Despite the fact that it's a remastered version of a 3-year-old Wii U game, it's still generating buzz from Nintendo fans, especially those who missed out on it the first time around.

Nintendo Switch games

The Nintendo Switch has been recording "phenomenal" sales ever since it was launched, and Zelda is a good part of the reason why. Breath of the Wild is the only game anyone has cared about on the Switch so far.

Nintendo Switch games

Despite a few bumps in the road, the launch of the Switch has been generally successful for Nintendo. People are raving about Zelda, the courageous form factor isn't universally detested, and most importantly, people are actually buying the console.

We won't know precise sales figures for a while, but GameRant managed to get GameStop's senior director of merchandising, Eric Bright, to talk Nintendo launch figures.

‘Arms’ is the Nintendo Switch game I’m most interested in after ‘Zelda’

Arms: Nintendo Switch

Although the Nintendo Switch launch lineup ended up being slightly more compelling than we expected, interest has begun to wane somewhat as Switch owners wait patiently for something more substantial than a port of a NEOGEO classic or an indie game that has been available on other consoles for years.

Unfortunately, Splatoon 2 won't arrive until this summer and we're going to have to wait until the holidays for Super Mario Odyssey. Save for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the only true exclusive to tide us over in the meantime is Arms -- a fighting game that takes advantage of the Switch's unique Joy-Con controllers.
