In the meantime, check out the official Nintendo PR info in the links below, afterwards we love to hear your comments on the sales data released.
The Nintendo Switch continues to be a hit, as Nintendo shifted 1.88 million units in the most recent financial quarter. This now brings the total lifetime to date sales for the console to 19.67 million. It's a strong performance, but at the same time, it doesn't close in on what the Switch sold in previous financial quarters: 2.93m and 7.23m respectively. This can be attributed to a slightly weaker 2018 lineup, as compared to the past. We can also see that Nintendo is on track for their predictions they made in April, where they wanted to hit 20 million Nintendo Switch consoles sold before March 2019. Such a goal will likely be quickly eclipsed, with major holiday titles like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Pokemon Let's Go on the way.
Beyond this, we also get an updated look at software sales for the Switch. Super Mario Odyssey sold 0.76 million units this quarter, bringing it to 11.17 million total sales, and is has the highest LTD sales on the system. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was at 1.13 million sold, and 10.35m total. The best-selling games were the new entries--Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze and Mario Tennis Aces, at 1.40m and 1.38m respectively. ARMS and 1-2 Switch performed badly, both at 0.16m sold during the quarter. The worst sold game was Xenoblade Chronicles 2 , which only shifted 0.11m copies, though it sits at 1.42m LTD sales.
