After selling more than 84 million units, the Nintendo Switch has surpassed the Xbox 360 to become the eighth-selling console to date.
As The Gamer emphasized and announced in last year’s Nintendo financial results, Nintendo Switch currently sells 84.59 million units, outpacing 590,000 Xbox 360 units. However, Nintendo has yet to surpass its most popular consoles, including the Game Boy, which sold 118.69 million units, and the Nintendo DS, which sold 154.02 million units.
The number of Nintendo continues to grow, with 587.12 million units of software shifting during the lifetime of Nintendo Switch, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe top selling 35.39 million units, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons 3,263. It continues with 10,000 units. Sold. Other top sellers are regular suspects such as Super Smash Brothers Ultimate (23.84m), The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (22.28m), and Pokemon Sword and Shield (21.10m).
This isn’t the only interesting thing about Nintendo’s annual financial results. It was also discovered that the company has nominated Illuminations CEO Chris Meledandri as Nintendo’s next outside director. This is fully linked to Nintendo’s plans to move into a more animated project after the Super Mario movie currently under development at Illumination Studios, which Meredandri is working with Shigeru Miyamoto.
So what’s next for Nintendo? The company is constantly rumored to be working on the Nintendo Switch Pro, which is reported to support 4K visuals and several other improvements. In addition, the long-awaited sequels such as Splatoon 3, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, and Metroid Prime 4 are appearing one after another. The latter two Nintendo have not yet confirmed a definitive release period.
