First off, Nintendo Italy has announced via a press release, that the console has become the fastest selling console of all time in the country. It has overtaken the previous record holder, the Nintendo Wii. Nintendo Italy's General Manager, Andrea Persegatti, attributes the success of the platform to the outstanding software, which has connected with a wide audience in Italy.

That's not all, however, recent sales numbers provided by Le Figaro reveals, that the Nintendo Switch has officially overtaken the Wii U by selling 911.000 units in 2017.
