It’s time for new financial assessments at Nintendo, with the company has published an interesting report that photographs its current position on the gaming market. The data shared by the Kyoto giant confirm record performance for Nintendo Switch. As of March 2021, there are officially 84.59 million consoles sold all over the world, alongside 587.12 million games. In the course of the fiscal year 2020 alone (1 April 2020 – 31 March 2021), in particular, 28.83 million Nintendo Switches and 230.88 million games were sold. In the twelve months considered, Nintendo generated profits of 1,758.9 billion yen: of these, 1,666.4 billion are related to the Nintendo Switch market.
