July 31, 2018

Today Nintendo announced its financial results for the three months between April 1st and June 30th 2018. As usual, this means that we received an update on shipments for both Switch and 3DS.

As you may imagine, a quite a few new Switch units have found their way to retailers worldwide during the quarter.

As you can see in the infographic below, lifetime shipments for the Switch reached 19.67 million as of March 31st. In the meanwhile, the 3DS family (which also includes 2DS and New 2DS XL) reached 72.89 million units shipped. Of course, we also get an update in software sales for both platforms.


This means that 1.88 million Switch units have been shipped in the quarter. This is considerably slower than the 3.2 million PS4 shipments in the same quarter, inverting the trend from the previous quarter, in which the Switch shipped 430,000 consoles more than the rival.

If you want to compare, you can check out the previous shipments update in our dedicated article from April.

If you still don’t have a Switch and want one, you can purchase your unit on Amazon.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
