By the end of 2019, Nintendo Switch had sold 52.48 million units and 300 million units of software. The top three software sales were Mario Motorsport (22.96 million copies), “Super Smash Bros.” (17.68 million copies), and “Super Mario: Odyssey” (16.59 million copies), all of which were among the top 10 sellers:
Among non-first-line IPs, Fire Emblem: Three House sold 2.58 million copies, making it the best-selling series; third-party “Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order” sold 1.02 million copies.
The company raised its forecast for the current fiscal year, raising Switch sales from 18 million units to 19.5 million units.
Nintendo has lived more easily in the Mobile game space than its traditional gaming business, making almost $1 billion with little effort.
“Fire Emblem Heroes” contributed more than half of the company’s revenue to $656 million; even more amazingly, the downloads accounted for only 4% of all mobile game downloads, but contributed most of the revenue, with an average of $41 per customer download and an amazing efficiency.
