Pokemon and on and on and on...
Nintendo’s third quarter financilals are here, and can’t talk about anything else first without saying that Pokemon Scarlet and Violet has sold 20.61m copies since launch – it’s just obscene.
Elsewhere Nintendo is hitting it out the park with hardware and software, it is the third (and holiday) quarter so numbers are expected to be big – but still. The Nintendo Switch has now sold 122.55 million units, which means its already overtaken the PlayStation 4.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe continues to stream along adding 3.59 million units sold in the quarter taking it to 52 million copies sold. All of Nintendo’s other games continue to move along too, Nintendo Switch Sports is up to 8.61 million sold. Bayonetta passed the magic million, just, scraping in at 1.04 million sold.
Nintendo dropped its forecast for the financial year, it believe its will now only sell through 18 million instead of 19 million. Net sales were also down 1.9% on the same period last year.
Nintendo Switch total: 122.55m (Up from 114.33m)
