In its financial results for the three months that ended June 30, 2023, Nintendo has confirmed that 3.91 million Switch consoles were sold during that quarter. That brings lifetime sales of the hybrid handheld and home console to 129.53 million sales, cementing its position as the third-best-selling console of all time.
This is a 13.9% increase year-on-year according to Nintendo, with sales of the OLED model accounting for most of the purchases (2.83 million) during this quarter. Game sales were also up during this period, with games like The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and reliable earners like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe helping the company shift over 52 million game units.
“The new title The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom sold 18.51 million units during the first quarter, which not only significantly increased software unit sales, but also drove hardware sales,” Nintendo added in its report.
