First and foremost, the Nintendo Switch (including Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite) have sold over 61 Million units worldwide, surpassing the total sales of the NES. This quarter, 5.68 Million units were sold, which is a very strong showing for Nintendo.

Another big tidbit we learned was that Ring Fit Adventure, Nintendo’s unique, original fitness IP has sold over 4 Million copies since its release back in October of last year. Ring Fit has been hard to keep in stock, with Nintendo mentioning that, so it’s nice to see it selling so well.

Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics has sold over 1.03 Million copies since its release on June 5th, and Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition has sold over 1.32 Million copies since May 29th. Both incredibly strong showings for these games.
