Nintendo has announced updated sales numbers for Switch hardware and software, with the console family having sold 141.32 million units and software reaching 1,235.82 million units. This marks an increase from the 139.36 million hardware sales announced in February, indicating that sales are slowing down, given that the number revealed in November was 132.46 million. Obviously, the period from November to February benefits from the holiday shopping season, but we wouldn’t expect another significant jump in numbers unless Nintendo decides to heavily discount the hardware.

The company confirmed on social media that an announcement for the Switch’s successor will be made within this fiscal year. Also, a Nintendo Direct for June has been confirmed, focusing on the software lineup for the latter half of 2024. However, the Nintendo Switch successor won’t be mentioned in that presentation.

Nintendo also shared details on software sales for first-party published games, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe continues to lead the way at 61.97 million units sold. What’s most surprising about that figure is it represents an increase of 1.39 million since last quarter. As a reminder, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was released over seven years ago. In other notable news concerning software sales, Kirby and the Forgotten Land has reached 7.52 million units sold, and Pikmin 4 now stands at 3.48 million. Super Mario RPG has moved 3.31 million units, while recent releases Princess Peach: Showtime! and Mario vs. Donkey Kong have sold 1.22 million and 1.12 million units, respectively.
