Nintendo Switch Hardware Sales Reach 2.74 Million Worldwide, 5.46 Million For Software

But the popularity of one game - The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - is believed to be a driver for numerous sales. Both of these games were released at the same time as the hardware.

It's unlikely that Switch sales will remain quite as high in the coming months as during its launch phase, but Nintendo is still projecting healthy sales for its next fiscal year.

A good portion of that move can be attributed to Nintendo's newest console, the red-hot Switch.

Late a year ago the company patented a VR headset that appeared to be created to hold the Nintendo Switch tablet, but naturally people questioned its feasibility. This is why no one can find one. That, as similarly noted mid-April, seems to be because the unprecedented greater than 1-to-1 attach rate is probably due to some fans snatching up one of the limited editions along with a second copy to play.

On the portable front, 3DS game sales were strong, Nintendo said, specifically calling out Pokemon Sun and Moon, which have now combined to sell 15.44 million units. Head down to the comments section as well to let if know if you contributed to the Switch's success, or if you're going to wait longer to pick one up.

Yes, that means Nintendo sold more Switch versions of Zelda than it sold Switch consoles. The innovative joystick does split into two pieces and it can be used by two separate players from very basic games (like 1-2 Switch which was created to show off the technology). Despite several games releasing with heavy amiibo compatibility, sales were limited to 9.1 million figures and 9.3 million cards for the entire fiscal year. The company booked net profit of Yen16.5 billion in the year-earlier term that ended March last year.

Pokémon GO led to increased sales of software in the Pokémon series and drove the Nintendo 3DS family hardware sales growth outside of Japan.

For Wii U, the system sold 760,000 units during the fiscal year, down 77 percent year-over-year.

However, he added, "We are asking the world to fiscally provide the needed resources for us to save lives". She said: "People are really struggling to find primary needs such as food, shelter and water".

For the past three months alone, the Wii U sold.zero units. The Wii U is certainly dead at this point, being totally replaced by the Nintendo Switch. He admits to some surprise over Zelda's uptake, but that it vindicates the view that "a good game title will spur sales of the platform device".

Free work-in-progress download Breath of the NES aims to blend aspects of Breath of the Wild with the classic Zelda style, says its developer Winter Drake. The company claims that it expects to sell 10 million units in its current financial year, meaning it expects to have sold nearly 13 million total by April.

Nintendo reported revenues of $4.4 billion, compared to about $4.5 billion a year ago. The total Nintendo Switch sales fueled 5.46 million game sales across the library, with one notable hit.

Next up, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which launches for the Switch on Friday, April 28. Will Splatoon 2 and ARMS be enough to do that?
