Switch has sold over 68.3 million units
Switch is officially Nintendo’s second best-selling console of all time, and has now outsold the classic Nintendo Entertainment System.
There is still some way to go before the Switch catches up to the Wii, which sold a staggering 101.63 million units and has produced 456.49 million software sales. The numbers come straight from Nintendo's financial report.
Booming sales: Digital software sales have increased dramatically, rising 139.4 per cent compared to last year, mostly driven by Switch. Nintendo reported sales amounting to ¥171.5 billion between April and September this year, which was likely boosted by the COVID-19 lockdowns.
Good business: Hardware sales increased by 80.9 per cent, while software increased by 71.4 per cent. Nintendo's mobile games business saw more modest growth, with revenues growing by 33.9 per cent to ¥26.7 billion. Nintendo claim their major upcoming releases are on schedule, but have yet to announce any release dates.
