The Nintendo Switch just became the fastest-selling video game console in US history

Nintendo's got an explosively popular console on its hands with the Nintendo Switch.

It's so popular, in fact, that it's become the Japanese game company's fastest-selling game console ever in the United States — the largest market for Nintendo products. It's even surpassed the wildly popular Nintendo Wii console, which previously held the record.

More than just setting a new record for Nintendo, the speed at which the Switch is selling makes it the fastest-selling console ever in the United States. That's due in large part to a pair of heavy-hitter games from Nintendo released in the same year as the Switch: "Super Mario Odyssey" and "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild."

They're not just popular games — they're ubiquitous games if you're a Switch owner. Over 50% of all Switch owners own both games, and nearly two-thirds have already bought "Super Mario Odyssey." Another 50% own "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe" — that's three games that sold nearly 3 million copies apiece in the console's first 10 months of sales.
