Nintendo has just announced that the Switch has sold 111,000,000 units. This is a significant milestone beyond the console and a testament to Kyoto’s financial results, which are now at half-mast in nearly all areas of its fiscal year.
The Nintendo Switch joined the elite club of consoles with over 100 million sales last February. This surpasses the PS1’s long-standing rival, the Wii. Accordingly, the video gaming world continues to search for figures for the small laptop that could surpass the previous behemoths in this ranking. On Wednesday, the financial results of Kyoto’s second quarter were announced. They were eagerly awaited.
There isn’t much to be proud of at first glance. Nintendo is losing at almost all levels, just like other tech giants. Turnover fell by EUR 2.2billion by 5%. Profits fell by 748 million euros (-15%). Despite all this, the Switch holds its own in this turbulent climate and has reached a new milestone: 110 million sales.
Nintendo Switch could soon catch up to PS4 sales
The console has sold 111.08 millions units to date. It is still in fifth place, but it trails the Game Boy and the PS4 in this ranking. This is a result that was not expected: Nintendo Switch sales dropped by 23% in the second quarter compared to last. This number does not concern Kyoto.
The latter is a result of a lack of components that limits its production and, consequently, reduces its sales. According to the manufacturer, the “demand remains stable across all regions”, which allows him to be confident for the upcoming months. According to the manufacturer, it has indicated that it will continue its goal of 21 million sales by March 2023. Nintendo can count upon the release of highly anticipated titles such as Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 or Splatoon 3 to help it achieve its goal.
