We can also learn that record-breaking success saw Nintendo Switch surpass Game Boy Advance sales by more than 31,000 units, dethroning the handheld to be recognised as having the best first-month sales for any of the company's platforms. The Show had strong showings on the top 10 list without accounting for digital sales.

Moreover, sales of Nintendo's video game "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild", for the Switch, were over 900,000 units, which NPD says was an "attach rate" of 99% - basically, everyone who bought a Switch bought Zelda - which was a record attach rate for a "non-bundled" game, again, since NPD's records back to 1995. Switch was Nintendo's biggest-ever hardware launch, and "the second biggest launch for any video game platform" since NPD began tracking numbers.

For scale, the portion of sky depicted is about three times the span of an outstretched hand at arm's length wide. However, the time of the peak is variable from year to year, so the maximum could lie between 4h and 15h UT.

Well, it looks like everything we've suspected about the Nintendo Switch is true - the release of the console has broken records as evidenced by the NPD results, which Nintendo managed to get ahold of.
