With "Breath of the Wild's" continued overwhelming popularity amongst gamers, its current worldwide sales are now 2.76 million units through March 31. 390,000 units of its Switch version in Japan were sold by Nintendo, and 2.37 million copies all over the world, and the figures represent all versions.

"Breath Of The Wild" Outsells Nintendo Switch Sales
Nintendo also revealed the total worldwide sales of their latest console system, Nintendo Switch, which is currently sitting at 2.74 million units so far. However, "Breath of the Wild" overtakes the console system's sales, which meant more people own a copy of the game's Switch version than the console itself, Polygon reported.
This situation also happened in the US for the month of March. The game company sold more copies of the video game than the console system, which were 925,000 copies and over 906,000 units respectfully. Nintendo explained that consumers bought both the limited edition of the game for collection, and a second version to play.
