According to financial report of Nintendo, Nintendo Sold 4.2 Million Switch Consoles In March this year thanks to Animal Crossing
Back in May, we got our hands on Nintendo‘s latest fiscal year earnings report, revealing that the lifetime sales total for Switch hardware had reached 55.77 million as of 31st March 2020. In that year, from 1st April 2019 to the end of March 2020, Nintendo managed to shift 21.03 million units.
At the time, we think that the launch of Animal Crossing: New Horizons and the global COVID-19 pandemic may have given Nintendo a significant boost in that last month, possibly helping to increase the console’s sales a little further than we would have previously anticipated. Now, thanks to a new report from GoldenCasinoNews, we can see exactly how it all went down.
According to the report, Nintendo Sold 4.2 Million Switch from March compare to 21.03 million sales, meaning that March took for almost a fifth of that entire year’s hardware sales. You’d usually expect to see stats like this in the holiday season, but not during a relatively average month in the calendar year.
The report also breaks down Nintendo Switch hardware sales by region, revealing that North America has so far generated the majority of console sales (20.61 million units sold as of May 2020), with Europe and Japan next in line with 14.3 million and 13.4 million, respectively.
