    Financial Results Explanatory Material

    • Switch hardware sales have now reached 61.44 million units. That's 5.67 million sold in Q1!
    • Total software sales are now at 406.67 million. That's 50.43 million sold in Q1. In other words, roughly one-eighth of the total software sales happened in the last 3 months...
    • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe still holds the best-seller crown with 26.74 million, an additional 1.97 million in Q1. But for how long?
    • Animal Crossing: New Horizons took second place and at this rate, could take the first spot before the year is over! It sold an additional 10.63 million in Q1, for a total of 22.4 million lifetime. A "lifetime" of about 3 months, insane performance!
    • Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is now 3rd with 19.99 million (+1.15 million in Q1).
    • Fourth is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild with 18.60 million (+1.19 in Q1). As predicted, it overtook Mario.
    • Another game that overtook Mario is Pokémon Sword and Shield with 18.22 million (+0.85 in Q1). It is now the third best-selling Pokémon game of all time, behind Red/Blue and Gold/Silver.
    • So Super Mario Odyssey is now 6th with 18.06 million (+0.65 in Q1). At this pace, it will never catch up with the top 5 again.
    • As for the few new games that came out this quarter, Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition sold 1.32 million, and Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics sold 1.03 million. Not bad at all!
    • Ring Fit Adventure sold an additional 1.17 million in Q1, for a total of 3.90 million, the covid effect!
    • In terms of future releases, Bayonetta 3, Metroid Prime 4 and Breath of the Wild 2 are still TBA, but Bravely Default II is still 2020. And well, Pikmin 3 Deluxe is slated for October 30th. I really hope they've got something more to announce soon.

  • Soon the prophecy will come to pass, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons will pass Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, heralding the dawn of a new era: the era of Mario Kart 9.

  • Wow the Switch top 10 software sales have even better sales numbers than even the Top 10 selling titles that the PS2, a console that sold almost 3 times more than Switch, sold.
