Switch owners sure do love boxed games, perhaps more so than their PS4 and Xbox One-owning friends. However, the rise of digital sales is still apparent even on Nintendo's turf, and the company's recent financial report shows that downloadable content is generating plenty of cash for the firm.

According to Nintendo, "downloadable versions of packaged software and download-only software for Nintendo Switch, as well as the contribution from Nintendo Switch Online throughout the entire fiscal year" have helped boost overall digital sales to 124.9 billion yen – which is an impressive 48.3 percent increase on a year-on-year basis.

Nintendo's mobile operation – which could be seen as an off-shoot of Nintendo's digital business – reached 36.9 billion yen, a rise of 10.6 percent on a year-on-year basis.
