Sales data continues to pile in for Nintendo, and it continues to show a trend that suggests that the console is selling better than people expected. According to IHS Markit data, the Nintendo Switch sold almost 2.3 million consoles around the world during March, the console’s launch month. As a result, they have upgraded their Switch country level forecasts. This is because Nintendo’s Q1 2017 forecast of 2 million Switch sales worldwide has been “significantly beaten by a minimum of 20%”. Sales of the Switch have been larger than they expected. They also said that “sell-in to the end of March is likely to have amounted to between 2.4 to 2.6 million as Switch continues to be out of stock across major sales territories”. However, don’t cheer just yet. IHS says that the second phase of the Switch’s launch, the period of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s release, will “give us a better indication of how the console will retain its sales momentum”. They are also curious about how Nintendo’s paid online subscription service will go. As a result, they say that things are looking promising, but it’s still early to say for sure at this time.
