Nintendo sells 23.06 million Switch consoles – Nintendo Switch Switch to OLED and Switch Lite models – from April 2021 to March 2022, the video game giant announced on Tuesday. The total number of sales of the company in the fiscal year ended March 31 is largely driven by sales of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl reaching a total of 14.65 million units and Pokemon legends: Arceus reaching 12.64 million units.

Older titles, incl Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (9.94 million units) and Animal Crossing: New Horizons (6.01 million units) also continued to contribute significantly to Nintendo’s sales.

However, according to Nintendo, sales of Switch consoles fell by 20% year on year. This is partly due to the popularity of the March 2020 edition. Animal Crossing: New Horizons stimulating hardware sales in the previous fiscal year and partly due to shortage of semiconductors and other components during the past fiscal year. Software sales, on the other hand, rose 1.8 percent year-over-year to 235.07 million units, the highest annual value of software sales ever published for the Nintendo platform, the company said.

Nintendo’s net sales for the fiscal year amounted to 1.69 trillion yen (~ 12.97 billion dollars), down 3.6% from the previous year.
