Following that release, Nintendo also dropped a presentation that looked at user analytics, covering demographics and more. In this slideshow, Nintendo shares that 290 million Nintendo Account users are distributed across 164 countries.

The news of Nintendo’s updated user count came following the release of its latest earnings report. With 290 million accounts across 164 countries, there are Nintendo players in all but 31 countries worldwide. That said, the company didn’t specify the countries in which the accounts are located.

Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa spoke to the milestone and what it means for the future of Nintendo’s business in a statement we caught over at Nintendo Everything:

Nintendo also provided an updated infographic that depicts the age demographic of Nintendo Switch owners. While there is solid representation among all ages, it appears that people aged 20-25 make up the largest portion of Switch players. This is roughly in line with the data provided by the company last November.
