New Sales Information About The Nintendo Switch

Nintendo released its latest half-year (April 1 – September 30) financial report.

The big N announced that in the previous fiscal quarter year (July 1 – September 30), 3.19 million Switches, and 24.17 million software were sold. With this result, the Switch has sold 22.86 million in 1.5 years, which is a respectable number, especially after the Nintendo Wii U, which barely managed to get more than half of it after several years…

Nintendo didn’t modify its prediction, though – previously, they forecasted 20 million Nintendo Switches shipped from April 1, 2018, until the end of March 2019, the current fiscal year. It’s likely going to be achieved, as the October-December quarter usually boosts sales due to the holiday shopping.

Up to now, Nintendo sold 111.10 million Switch software, which, if we add the 22.86 million Switches, means a console has five games on average. The big N also updated its first-party Switch titles’ charts:

  1.         Super Mario Odyssey – 12.17 million
  2.         Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – 11.71 million
  3.         The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – 10.28 million
  4.         Splatoon 2 – 7.47 million
  5.         1-2 Switch – 2.64 million
  6.         Mario Tennis Aces – 2.16 million
  7.         ARMS – 2.10 million
  8.         Kirby: Star Allies – 2.10 million
  9.         Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze – 1.67 million
  10.         Xenoblade Chronicles 2 – 1.53 million


Not bad. Congratulations. A quick mention of the Nintendo 3DS, too: 73.53 million sold handhelds, 371.16 million games sold (which means five games/handheld on average).
