Nintendo revealed the sales figures of its Switch console in its first quarter financial reports of 2018, showing healthy growth for the booming console. Between April 1 and June 30, the company moved roughly 1.88 million consoles around the world, bringing the Switch’s total sales to 19.67 million.
The number is down from the previous time period last year, when Nintendo sold 1.96 million, but software sales still have a strong showing for Nintendo’s iconic franchises. Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze sold a estimated 1.4 million copies since May, not bad for a remaster, and Mario Tennis Aces also sold about 1.38 million copies.
Two million sellers in the slowest part of the year is not a bad place to be.
The Nintendo 3DS is still trucking along with 360,000 sales and 2.95 million software sales, but it’s the NES Classic, which got a re-release this year, that stuns the list. Over three months, it sold 1.26 million units…
…and silly Nintendo insisted it was done making them. Yeah, right.
Nintendo also updated its website, showing how its modern consoles, and the Wii-U, stack up against its classic lineup.
Heading into the holiday season, Nintendo exclusively has Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!, Let’s Go, Eevee!, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate up its sleeve, all set to do some damage on the market.
