Nintendo has already sold more than 1.5 million Nintendo Switch units worldwide to consumers, according to estimates made by SuperData.

Based on data supplied by Famitsu and GfK, SuperData says that half a million Switch units were sold in the US, 360,000 were sold in Japan, whilst 85,000 and 110,000 units were shifted in the UK and France, respectively.

The figures are largely based on first week sales, meaning Nintendo's two million shipped target by the end of March looks a real possibility, if it hasn't already reached that milestone.

SuperData also notes that 89 per cent of Switch owners picked up The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, equating to more than 1.3 million copies sold. The game is also likely to be the must-buy title for Switch owners for some time to come, even when Mario Kart 8 releases at the end of April. That figure doesn't include the game's sales on Wii U.

PS4 sold more than one million units at its North American launch in just 24 hours, going on to shift more than 2.1 million worldwide units during its first two weeks.
