Nintendo’s Switch soon caught up with the N64, Smash Bros Ultimate sold 12 million times
In the fourth quarter of 2018, Nintendo sold 9.41 million copies of the Switch, the company announced.
The console now stands at a total of 32.27 million units sold and is only 660,000 units away from the total sales of the Nintendo 64 (via Engadget).
As a result, things went a lot better in Christmas business than in the previous year. In 2017, 7.23 million consoles went over the counter during this period.
However, Nintendo will likely not achieve its original target of 20 million consoles sold in the current fiscal year. After the first three quarters, the current figure is 14.48 million units and has accordingly reduced its sales forecast to 17 million. Which are impressive numbers nonetheless.
Speaking of impressive numbers. Super Smash Bros Ultimate, released in December, has since sold 12.08 million times. The Pokémon Let’s Go, which has been available since November, has 10 million. Super Mario Party has 5.3 million sales.
The company’s Christmas sales climbed from $ 4.4 billion a year ago to $ 5.6 billion, and operating profit is around $ 1.5 billion.
