Nintendo’s latest fiscal year earnings report revealed the lifetime sales total for Switch hardware had reached 55.77 million as of March 31, 2020. So, from Apri 1, 2019, to the end of March 2020, Nintendo has managed to shift 21.03 million units. That’s good, considering the shortages happening.
A new report from Golden Casino News shows us that 4.2 million of those 21.03 million came from sales from March alone, meaning that month alone accounted for almost a fifth of the entire year’s hardware sales. Many would expect these stats during the holiday season, but not during a relatively average month in the calendar year. So, it seems like the launch of Anima Crossing: New Horizons and our current situation may have given the Nintendo Switch a significant boost, nudging the console’s sales a little further.
The report also gives us more information on hardware sales by region and the top-selling games, and you can look at the graph more in-depth below. Are you surprised to see Switch sales jump this significantly in sales? Let me know in the comment section down below.
