According to Nintendo’s latest financial report, the Nintendo Switch has now sold over 132 million units, solidifying its position as a potential best-seller for the company. And this success can easily be credited to strong software sales from newly released first-party titles like The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and Pikmin 4.

The figures were reported in Nintendo’s Fiscal Year 2024 second-quarter results, concluding on September 30. The Nintendo Switch console has officially reached 132.46 million units sold, bringing it closer to Nintendo’s highest-selling hardware, the Nintendo DS, which stands at 154.02 million units. The only other console surpassing the DS is the PlayStation 2, with around 158 million units sold.

The gross sales for this period marked the highest since the portable console’s debut, exhibiting a 21.2% year-over-year increase. This increase can be attributed to various factors, including augmented revenue from smartphone games and the immense popularity of Super Mario Bros.

Revenue from mobile and IP-related products experienced a 133.3% year-on-year growth, while revenue from video game platforms saw a 16.7% increase.

The collective unit sales for the entire Nintendo Switch family, including the OLED model and Switch Lite, witnessed a 2.4% year-over-year rise at 6.84 million units. This encompasses 1.25 million standard Nintendo Switch units, 4.69 million OLED units, and 0.9 million Switch Lite consoles.

Nintendo’s report also disclosed that Tears of the Kingdom achieved 19.5 million units sold, with Pikmin 4 leading the series at 2.61 million units sold.

Overall software sales saw a 1.8% year-over-year boost, totaling 97.08 million units. Digital sales constituted 50.2% of the total software sales, experiencing a 15.8% year-over-year growth.

Additionally, Nintendo attributed the positive impact on Mario-related titles to the release of The Super Mario Bros. Movie in April. Sales for other titles also exhibited steady growth, resulting in 16 million seller titles during this period, including titles from other software publishers.

Looking ahead, Nintendo plans to launch a range of games and a new Nintendo Switch 2 console to gain continuous engagement on the Nintendo Switch and encourage people to acquire multiple consoles.
