Nintendo Switch sales hit 2.74 million since launch

By the time Holiday 2017 rolls around, titles like Super Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2, Xenoblade Chronicles X and April 28's Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will have had the chance to become essentials, just like March's Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild; the Wii U took years to build a library of similar quality.

Nintendo reported net sales of ¥489.1 billion, beating the company's own guidance, and net profit of ¥102.6 billion, representing a 10.7% year-over-year drop, but beating analysts' estimates of ¥93.6 billion. Nintendo 3DS software sales volume saw a 14 percent increase year-over-year to 55.08 million units.

The Nintendo Switch has been out for over a month now and it's still going strong.

Nintendo has released their hardware and software sales figures for the last fiscal year, and there's some surprising info to be found in here. While Ono isn't sure if the Switch will beat the Wii in total unit sales, Ono does think the Switch will be more profitable due to the vast array of exciting new and classic games that Switch users are expected to buy.

If you want to get 20% off some Nintendo Switch games, one way of doing it is by signing up for a free trial for Amazon Prime. Nintendo expects to sell 10 million units for the current financial year. Either way, Nintendo is seeing some of their best years so far. "Your new Nintendo God is the Switch!" One possible explanation is that fans bought the game before purchasing the Nintendo Switch console, which could make sense since the Switch is still facing some supply issues. Software sales have reached 5.46 million units, with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild leading the charge and claiming 2.76 million units for itself. Considering one came out in 2011 and one came out seven weeks ago, that absolutely should not be the case.

First up are the hardware sales numbers.

Target Stores Turn Shopping Carts Into Mario Kart
Earlier this week, Best Buy also announced that it would have consoles available on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe 's April 28 launch day. The biggest highlight of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe , and what makes the entire package worth picking up, is the game's Battle Mode.

For example, the Wii U started out by selling approximately 890,000 in the first six weeks after the launch. Sales have actually increased over the previous year, most likely due to popular titles like Pokemon Sun & Moon.

Insert Quarter is our showcase for some of the best and most interesting writing about video games on the Internet. Ultimately, though, supply will catch up with demand, and at its base price Switch is worth it, especially for families, but you need to consider the true cost before buying the console. However, Pokemon Go (along with Fire Emblem Heroes and Super Mario Run) contributed to a growing mobile business for Nintendo that will probably grow in the coming years. Furthermore, we expect the Switch tie ratio will be higher than in the Wii period. The $30 in savings applies only to your standard black refurbished units of the New Nintendo 3DS XL.
