Nintendo sells fewer Switch consoles –
The global chip shortages have caused Nintendo to sell a million fewer Switch consoles in the past quarter than in the same period last year. It sold more than 3.4 million, which represents a decrease of 23 percent, the Japanese company announces in its quarterly figures (pdf).
The regular model of the Nintendo Switch was sold 60 percent less: 1.3 million times, compared to 3.3 million times last year. The Nintendo Switch Lite was also sold a lot less (600,000 units compared to 1.14 million). Of the new OLED model, which was released last October, 1.5 million pieces went over the counter.
According to Nintendo, the declining sales figures are due to problems with the production of chips. The company expects this to improve at the end of the summer and the beginning of the autumn.
Nintendo also saw sales decline in software sales. With 41.5 million games sold, there was a decrease of 8.6 percent.
In recent months, some new titles from Nintendo have appeared. Nintendo Switch Sports sold the best (4.84 million units), followed by Mario Strikers: Battle League (1.91 million) and Kirby and the Forgotten Land (1.88 million).
Remarkably, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe remains as popular as ever, even though it’s five years old. In the past quarter, Nintendo sold 1.48 million copies of the game. It remains the most popular Switch game, with a total of 47 million copies.
