Nintendo Switch

Super Mario Odyssey Has Sold Over 9 Million Units, And Other Software Sales

Nintendo released its earnings earlier today and they were impressive with sales increasing 175.5 per cent year-on-year and reaching ¥857bn (£5.5bn). The Kyoto-based company’s operating profit increased 494.6 per cent year-on-year to reach ¥156bn (£1.01bn). What’s important is to look at software sales for the immensely popular  Nintendo Switch system.

  • Super Mario Odyssey 9.07 million copies
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe 7.33 million copies
  • Splatoon 2  4.91m million copies
  • Xenoblade Chronicles 2 above a million units shipped

On the back of these strong results, the platform holder has revised its forecast for the full year ending March 31st 2018: Nintendo now expects profit to reach ¥160bn (£1.03) by the end of that period, having previously announced ¥120bn (£0.77). Revenue is now expected to reach ¥1.02 trillion for that period, against a previously expected ¥960bn.





  1. The Switch also sold 14.7mil units, making the 16mil forecast by its first year really possible, 1 month and 2 days before that, come on Switch, sell that 16mil!


    1. Same. Can’t help but think they might have cut the list short because it might not look good for third-party attach rate. Just using the numbers for the games they provided and some VG Chartz numbers for Mario + Rabbids and 1,2 Switch (unreliable, I know), Nintendo properties seem to account for over 63% of those software sales. Of course, third parties making up 37% of sales isn’t super bad it’s still a small chunk of the pie that everyone else is sharing.
