Nintendo lowers sales forecast despite heavy Christmas season

With 9.41 million consoles moved between October and December, Nintendo was the best quarter for switch sales, up 30 percent from a year ago. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Pokémon: Let's Go were both big hits with 12.08 million and 10 million units sold, respectively. Super Mario Party also developed well and sold 5.3 million copies.

Despite the large number, Nintendo will not be able to reach the self-imposed target of 20 million switch consoles sold this fiscal year. The current volume sold has been 14.49 million units since April, but just under two million were sold by Nintendo last year. Accordingly, the company has lowered its forecast for the year to 1

7 million units.

Switches' sales momentum continues to be strong with 32.27 million consoles sold after launch – and few expect Nintendo to reach the ambitious 20 million euros first place. The company has significant titles in the Animal Crossing and Pokémon series, which will hit the system this year, despite the fact that Metroid Prime 4 is being pushed further back than expected following the recent announcement of a restart in development.
