Nintendo has published its latest financial report, giving us a look at the total Switch sales so far. It’s looking good, with combined might of the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Switch Lite, and Nintendo Switch – OLED Model selling 107.65 million units, inching ever closer to that 110 million milestone.

Despite this, Nintendo reports that sales of the Switch has decreased by 20% year-on-year, with the company citing “shortages of semiconductor components and other parts”. It also singles out Animal Crossing: New Horizons as a particularly high driver of sales during the last fiscal year, something that Nintendo has arguably lacked in more recent months.

Here’s how the console sold over the last year:

  • Total Switch sales this period: 23.06 million
  • Total Standard Switch sales this period: 13.56 million
  • Total Switch OLED sales this period: 5.80 million
  • Total Switch Lite sales this period: 3.70 million

Now let’s take a look at where the Switch now stands against Nintendo’s other major systems:

Console Total Sales
DS 154.02 Million
Game Boy 118.69 Million
Switch 107.65 Million
Wii 101.63 Million
Game Boy Advance 81.51 Million
3DS 75.94 Million
Family Computer / NES 61.91 Million
Super Family Computer / SNES 49.10 Million
N64 32.93 Million
GameCube 21.74 Million
Wii U 13.56 Million

It’s a stark reminder of how successful the Switch continues to be and with games like Bayonetta 3, Xenoblade Chronicles 3, and Pokémon Scarlet and Violet all slated for release this year, it’s looking like the console will see healthy sales well into the new year.

Time will tell, of course, whether the system manages to catch up to the Game Boy and the DS (we’re pretty confident on the former, at least), but we reckon the strong software support – including Breath of the Wild 2 in 2023 – should nudge it closer to the top two spots.

What do you make of the latest Switch hardware figures? Do you think it will catch up to the DS? Let us know in the comments.
