A graph accompanies the aforementioned data shared in Nintendo’s report, along with clarification of how data is being aggregated for the graph. In this, Nintendo notes it’s showing the number of annual playing users “for the 12 months starting in July, rather than for the fiscal year.”

The report continues by remarking on how over 100 million users played Nintendo Switch in the latest 12-month period. Not only is the number of annual users up for Switch, but also things like digital sales which increased 16 percent year-over-year in the first quarter and accounted for 53 percent of total software sales.
