Nintendo has announced its financial results for the first quarter of the current fiscal year, which covers the period from April through to June 2018. In the report, the company has given sales-to-date figures for its current hardware, as well as data specific to the quarter.
As you might imagine, Switch is doing incredibly well, with 19.67 million units sold since launch early last year. In terms of software, 86.93 Switch games have been sold since day one.
During the first quarter of this financial year, games like Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (1.40 million units), Mario Tennis Aces (1.38 million units) and Nintendo Labo (1.39 million units for both packs) performed well.
Switch hardware sales hit 1.88 million units for this quarter (a 4.4 percent drop on a year-on-year basis), while Switch software hit 17.96 million units (a 120.8 percent increase year-on-year).
The 3DS has now reached 72.89 million consoles sold, with a whopping 367.84 million games sold to date. 3DS sold 0.36 million units this quarter (61.9 percent down on last year), while 2.95 million software units were sold (49.6 percent down).
Elsewhere in the business, the relaunched NES Classic Edition notched up sales of 1.26 million units. Smartphone revenue reached 9.0 billion yen / $80 million (a very modest 0.4 percent increase on last year). The poor old Wii U, in case you were wondering, has only managed 13.56 million consoles to date, with 102.28 million units of software sold since launch.
The powerful performance of the Switch has enabled Nintendo to post net sales of $1,513 billion - an increase of 9 percent on last year - while actual profit is $394.6 million (a 42 percent jump year-on-year).
