Nintendo Switch Sports has managed to sell almost five million units since its release. The latest entry in the extremely popular Sports series is off to an incredible start, with Nintendo offering an insight into the number of units sold in the company’s earnings report.
Nintendo’s Q1 2023 earnings report was released early Wednesday, August 3, 2022. The documents, available via Nintendo Investor Relations page, offered information into all areas of the Big N’s operation, including a look at some of the big titles of the past quarter. Nintendo reports that Nintendo Switch Sports sold 4.84 million units since its release on April 29, 2022.
Though Nintendo describes software sales of Nintendo Switch Sports and Mario Strikers: Battle League as “off to a strong start,” the company does note that software sales “did not keep pace with the strong showing of the first quart of last fiscal year”.
