Zelda: Link’s Awakening shifts 3m copies.

Nintendo’s latest round of sales figures are in – and Switch Lite is off to a good start. In its first 11 days, Nintendo’s newest Switch shifted 1.95m units worldwide.

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening sold 3.13m copies during the same short timeframe.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses sold an impressive 2.29m since its launch at the end of July, while Super Mario Maker 2 has shifted 3.93m since the end of June.

Nintendo Switch sold just shy of 7m units total for the six months ended September 30th (up 36 per cent year-on-year), and 58.49m Switch games (up 38 per cent year-on-year). Digital game sales are up considerably, Nintendo noted, with downloadable software revenue spiking 83 per cent year-on-year.

Over the same six month period, Nintendo’s profit was up 53 per cent to 94.2bn yen (£670m) year-on-year.

Overall, it’s a rosy picture. Nintendo Switch has now sold 41.67m units worldwide – on track to overtake all-time sales of the SNES before the end of the next quarter.
