The Switch Has Officially Sold 19.67 Million Units

July 31, 2018

In only 15 months on the market, the Nintendo Switch has sold 19.67 million units worldwide.  This is a staggering number when compared to the Wii U sales and about puts it where the PS4 (which has sold 79 million unites) sales were when it first released back in 2013.

We could sit here and do a number comparison between the PS4 and the Switch but honestly, what is the point?  The PS4 had about a 4 and a half year head start but as long as we are sitting here talking about it, it looks as though the Switch is right on track in yearly sales comparisons.  At this point in its life cycle, the Switch has outsold many consoles of the past including the Wii U, Sega Saturn, and Sega Dreamcast.

Here are some other key points from Nintendo’s financial results:

  • Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze has sold 1.4 million units
  • Mario Tennis Aces sold 1.38 million
  • Nintendo Labo sold 1.39 million (sales include both Labo packs)
  • Switch sales are down from this point last year with a 4.4 percent drop
  • 3DS has sold 72.89 million
  • 3DS has sold 367.84 million games to date
  • Switch has sold 86.93 million games
  • NES Classic Edition re-release has sold 1.26 million
  • Smartphone sales have brought in $80 million
  • Wii U sold 13.56 million consoles to date
  • Wii U software has reached 102.28 million sold
  • Nintendo has posted net sales of $1,513 billion which is an increase of 9 percent over last year with actual profit at $394.6 million which is a 42 percent increase over last year
