Nintendo released its fiscal year earnings report for April 2019 to March 2020 earlier today, revealing that the Switch sold a truckload of units and its games aren’t far behind.

Of those games, the Pokémon Sword and Shield titles released in November 2019 have sold 17.37 units worldwide, Nintendo announced. That’s an impressive number considering the game has been out for less than a year.

This sales figure means that Sword and Shield have outsold all 3DS Pokémon games and nearly all of the DS games in the same timeframe. The only titles still outselling Sword and Shield are Diamond and Pearl by 300,000 and the Game Boy games.

There’s more good news for Nintendo on the software front, too. The highly-popular Animal Crossing: New Horizons game has sold over 11 million units in 11 days. That’s an astonishing one million units per day since release—and it hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down yet.

Sword and Shield will likely see more sales in June when the first of two big DLC packs are released for the games. The DLC will add new story content, more Pokémon to catch, and a free update of 100 returning Pokémon that weren’t in the original game.
