Nintendo Switch sales have sailed past N64 lifetime shipments

Nintendo Switch sales have sailed past N64 lifetime shipments

So far, 23 Switch games have now surpassed the 1-million-copies-sold mark, with Super Smash Bros Ultimate and Pokemon: Let's Go racking up 13.81M and 10.63M units, respectively.

Multiple rumors have appeared over the past few months that Nintendo is preparing to launch a new version of its Switch hybrid console. We still don't know what will make this particular Switch model different from the original model, but earlier reports have claimed Nintendo is making a new Switch with a smaller display. The firm sold 15 million Switch consoles in its first year and a total of 22 million units by late 2018. Nintendo's overall operating profit for the year was $2.2B, up from 1.6B last year.

The Nintendo Switch is no different.

For the upcoming fiscal year, ending March 31, 2020, Nintendo has forecast Switch sales of 18 million units.

You can check out the numbers below, with data up to March 31, 2019, so it's less than a month old.




"As a general rule, we're always working on new hardware and we will announce it when we are able to sell it", Shuntaro Furukawa told reporters in Japan.

On mobile, Nintendo's IP related income rose by 17 percent year-over-year to 46.0 billion yen ($411.8 million), and the company seemed particularly pleased with the performance of Dragalia Lost.

Nintendo might release a cheaper Switch model in June 2019, according to a report from Bloomberg.

One of the factors that may have led to Nintendo Switch Online's success is the free game offer with membership for "Tetris 99", a battle royale version of the classic game "Tetris" in which 99 players compete against each other. Also, just because it doesn't plan to announce new console skus at the event doesn't mean new offerings aren't in the works.
