While this is good news, it is important to know that there has been a drop in year-on-year sales, as was the case with last quarter. Nintendo cited the semiconductor shortage that’s currently ongoing, and compares this quarter’s major games to the ones that were released in the game quarter last year, and reports a 22% drop in sales in the latest quarter.
Even though the drop in sales is a bit alarming, Nintendo did confirm that in all regions, there’s still a demand in for the console. Nintendo also stated that as far as the semiconductor shortage goes, the situation seems to be improving starting from late summer to early autumn. All this should lend a hand in boosting the sales of the console.
In the latest quarter, the overall sales of the console were 3.43 million units sold. Four game titles, in particular, have helped the sales of the console as well, those are Nintendo Switch Sports, Mario Strikers: Battle League, Kirby and The Forgotten Land, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. All of these have helped boost sales.
When the sales of those 3.43 million are broken down, it becomes:
- Total Standard Switch sales this period: 1.32 million
- Total Switch OLED sales this period: 1.52 million
- Total Switch Lite sales this period: 0.59 million
