As for the future, Nintendo still wants to hit a target of 20 million additional Switch's sold for the fiscal year: 13 million more than last year. "Ultimate" will help drive significant sales during the holidays. Nintendo didn't really have any major new releases during this period, either, with Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and a Labo Vehicle Kit being the only first-party highlights.
Nintendo additionally announced that it has now sold 73.53 million Nintendo 3DS consoles and 371.16 million software units for the 3DS. The Switch is missing out on one of the strongest third-party lineups in years, including blockbusters like Red Dead Redemption 2 and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which won't be available on Nintendo's device due to its limited graphical power. If they do hit this figure, then they deserve commendations for an excellent fiscal year and console.
A weak spot in the company's results remains smartphone revenues, which only came in at $165 million (up 4.7% year over year) for the same period.
