Switch devs can request game-specific hashtags

Have you noticed that when you go to share screens of Zelda or other first party games via Twitter, the Switch will automatically include an appropriate hashtag? Not all games do this, but developers have hte option to request it! Devs just have to let Nintendo know they want a hashtag automatically attached to their games when screens are tweeted out. It'll be interesting to see if any devs use this in a unique way.

Switch hits over 500k sold in Japan in 4 weeks, quicker than PS4, but not as quick as Wii U

- Switch has sold 519,504 units in its first four weeks in Japan
- PS4 sold 439,810 units in four weeks, and took seven weeks to overtake its first half million units
- Wii U sold 500,000 units in three weeks, moving 557,901 by December 23rd, 2012

The thing to point out here is that the Wii U launched in the holiday season, while Switch launched in March. Goes to show how well the Switch is doing, and potentially, how unimportant the holiday season is for a system launch.
