Nintendo offered updated information on Switch sales from its recent financials. The company has sold 4.7 million units of the console with software sales at 13.60 million units.
Breaking down the software sales even further, it was revealed that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sold 3.54 million units while The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the Switch managed to sell 3.92 million. ARMS managed to sell 1.18 million while 1-2-Switch managed to sell 1.22 million units.
Given how Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was an updated version of the game released on Wii U, this is good news for Nintendo indeed. It should motivate Nintendo to release even more updated Wii U ports for the Switch. Could that mean Xenoblade Chronicles X, Super Smash Bros., Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and so on in the coming years?
Nintendo’s most recent exclusive was Splatoon 2 (whose review you can read here) with the next big release being Super Mario Odyssey out on October 27th.
