Nintendo sees Switch lifting revenue to 7-year high of $9bn

Nintendo sees Switch lifting revenue to 7-year high of $9bn Nintendo sees Switch lifting revenue to 7-year high of $9bn

That already exceeds sales of 13.56 million consoles for the Wii U that was on the market from late 2012 through 2017. In less than a year. Sales have exceeded initial estimates, on track to beat the lifetime numbers of its predecessor Wii U, leaving suppliers scrambling for parts.

As this chart by Statista shows, the biggest up-and-comer is the Nintendo Switch, which has attracted tremendous attention from developers in the mere months since its March 2017 launch. The publication asked Kimishima whether the company thinks the Nintendo Switch, released in March 2017, can overtake the Wii. That marked a gain of almost 5 million units from its 2006 debut.

There is no better place to verify Nintendo's incredible comeback than the company's own financial report for Q3, fiscal year 2018. Other hits were "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe", which moved 7.33 million copies, and "Splatoon 2", with 4.91 million.

In its earnings report, Nintendo offered the region-wise breakdown of the total Switch sales as well.

The company of 116.50 billion yen (£755m, $1.07 billion), up from 32.26 billion yen a year ago. By the end of last December, Nintendo had reportedly sold about 14.8 million Switches. We'll see if Game Freak can get out the new Pokemon Switch game in 2018, or if we'll have to wait a little bit "later" to finally play Pokemon on a household console. I think the cardboard is going to sell surprisingly well, even at almost $100.

Plenty to keep you and your Switch going far into 2019. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sold approximately 6.7 million units.

This is certainly impressive, especially considering that the Switch has been suffering for rather dramatic shortages during pretty much the whole year, with supply meeting demand basically only under major game releases and in the Holiday period.
