Nintendo to reach 20 million Switch sales

The total sale of Nintendo, the house of Mario has reached up to 19.67 million after the company sold 1.88 million Switch consoles last quarter. Although the sales have dropped when compared to its last two earnings of 2.93 million and 7.23 million consoles. The handheld console has outperformed its ancestor, the Wii U, and has collected a good inventory of special features, including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey. Above all, it is still reaping profits for Nintendo investors which keeps Nintendo switches in a good position. The firm reported its revenue of 168 billion yen (almost $1.5 billion) and Operating profit of 30.5 billion yen (almost $274 million).

The Mario Tennis Aces sold 1.38 million units whereas the cardboard-centric Nintendo Labo has sold almost 1.39 million units since April. Mobile games such as Super Mario Run and Fire Emblem Heroes have generated a revenue of 9 billion yen (approx.  $80 million) an increase of 0.4 percent on a year-to-year basis. The firm said it will launch its new mobile RPG this summer – Dragalia Lost and will then launch Mario Kart Tour later this year. The company planned to sell 20 million switch consoles between April to March’19. Although they have few blockbuster games yet to be launched such as Super Smash Bros, the company needs to improve its sale in the coming months in order to achieve the expected figures. The switch sales are tended to increase as the Christmas season will begin but Nintendo needs a steady flow of games to maintain the momentum.
