Nintendo’s latest financial report went live earlier today, showcasing strong software and hardware sales for the Switch over the past year.
Switch sales have seen nearly a 13-percent increase, bringing the total console sales to a staggering 34.74 million units worldwide. This number means that the Switch has now surpassed the global sales of the Nintendo 64, which sold 32.93 million units in its lifetime many years ago.
The Switch will likely remain a dominant force heading into the rest of 2019 as well, with huge titles like the latest installments of Animal Crossing, Pokémon, and Luigi’s Mansion all set to release sometime this year. Nintendo also revealed that Super Mario Maker 2 will be launching on June 28.
The report has lifted Nintendo’s share price this morning by one percent and follows a good few weeks of news from the tech giant. Nintendo is reportedly set to enter the Chinese market by partnering with Tencent to launch the Switch in China. The Nintendo Switch is also close to outselling the PS4 in Japan.
In other Nintendo news, the 3DS has predictably slowed down over the past few years—only 2.55 million units were sold this year (down from 6.4 million last year).
