With titles like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey out on store shelves, it's clear Nintendo is going to be able to keep up the momentum with solid games and system-sellers that get people to pull the trigger on the Switch in general. In Japan, the Switch recently surpassed the first-year sales record of the Sony PlayStation 2, the best-selling game console of all time, which was set in 2000.
