What You Need to Know:
- There just seems to be no stopping Nintendo at the moment, and why should they slow down? With a slew of blockbuster titles slated to drop this year, Nintendo should ride these waves for as long as possible.
- Back in April the Nintendo Switch was the best selling console with more than 280,000 units sold. This is the second month in a row that Nintendo Switch has led the pack in video game hardware sales, following a record-breaking launch in March.
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe raced through the finish line and collected a fine trophy. With all sales included for the month of April, it sold over 550,000 units. Breath of the Wild still continues its hot streak also, as it was the third-highest selling video game in April. This momentum will continue once Nintendo drops more of its titles later this year!
- The upcoming lineups for both systems include Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia (Nintendo 3DS, May 19), Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers from Capcom (Nintendo Switch, May 26), ARMS (Nintendo Switch, June 16), Ever Oasis (Nintendo 3DS, June 23) and Splatoon 2 (Nintendo Switch, July 21).

Nintendo really did make a Switch and have really surged in popularity with this amazing system. The Wii U was a flop but this is doing such an incredible job.
Nintendo definitely learned from their past mistakes and are now banking off that in a major way. I'm totally happy for them and their resilience!
