Nintendo released the Switch earlier this month, and according to the Japanese gaming behemoth, the platform has been selling amazingly well. Nintendo even stated that the Switch is currently the fastest-selling Nintendo console to date, even beating initial Wii sales. As covered yesterday, retailer GameStop has stated that the Switch is selling out within hours at the stores, and that the platform could very well "eclipse" the original Wii.
