The Nintendo Switch has now sold 79.98 million units which means that it has overtaken the Nintendo 3DS and is less than two million away from the Game Boy Advance and just short of 20 million less than the Nintendo Wii, which it seems destined to hit in the next few years.
When it comes to software, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is still out in front with 33.41 million units, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has hit 31.18 million which is incredible for a game that has been on sale for less than a year. To put it into context, it has now sold more than 10 million copies more than Super Mario Odyssey, Pokemon Sword/Shield, Super Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild.
When it comes to newer released software, Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit shifted 1.08 million, Pikmin 3 Deluxe shipped 1.94 million units, Age of Calamity shipped 2.84 million units and Super Mario 3D All-Stars shipped 8.32 million units
It’s going to be super interesting to see what direction Nintendo go in this year. It’s clear at the moment that they can do no wrong, and I’d say these numbers make me question whether they’d bother with a Nintendo Switch Pro at the moment.
