With the end of the fiscal year in the business world behind us, it’s that time when Nintendo releases it’s financial data to the public and provides refreshed Sales Figures for all first-party Nintendo titles and IP’s.
With recent releases such as Kirby and the Forgotten Land and Pokemon Legends Arceus, as well as popular titles such as Animal Crossing (with even more Changes are coming to Animal Crossing New Horizons in May), it’s a pretty exciting time to see how the latest Nintendo Switch video game titles are performing.
The most recent Nintendo Switch release was Kirby and the Forgotten Land which by the end of Nintendo’s reporting period, worldwide sales reached 2.65 million units. Although only just released, this already surpassed games such as New Pokemon Snap and Mario Golf: Super Rush.
Pokemon Legends Arceus which was Nintendo’s first big release in 2022, has since sold 12.64 million copies, which although hasn’t yet surpassed other Pokemon Switch titles, is on track (and expected) to reach Top 10 best selling Nintendo Switch games eventually.
Furthermore, with titles such as Splatoon 3, that has recently seen 3 New Weapons Confirmed for Splatoon 3, it will be exciting to see how it stacks up again fan favourites later in the year.
