Nintendo Sold Over 4 Million Switch Consoles In March

Back in March, millions of people stocked up on toilet paper, hand sanitizer... and a Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo announced this week that it sold a whopping 4.2 million consoles in the month of March - accounting for more than 1/5th of its sales for the entire previous year.

The boom in sales from the quarantine and the release of Animal Crossing: New Horizons actually led to a Switch shortage in recent weeks.
