Nintendo Financial Results: Switch sales top 19.67m, Mario Tennis 1.38m, DK TF 1.4m, more

It's a bit weird they're sticking to a 20m forecast, if we compare to PlayStation.

PS4 : Q1 - 3.2m. Forecast - 17m
Switch : Q1 - 1.88m Forecast - 20m

The forecast is 3m higher but they're already 1.3m behind, are they really going to outship PS4 by 4.3m over the next 3 quarters?

Sure I think their FY shipments will be more skewed towards the holiday than PlayStation but not by enough to reach 20m.

Ive said in the past I expected them to overshoot but still reach 20m. (18.5m to consumers, 20m shipped for the fiscal year) but I don't think I believe they're going to do that anymore.



Predictions (Made July 2019)

LTD: PS4 - 130m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 52m       2019 : PS4 - 15m, Switch - 18.8m, XBO - 4.8m        2020: Switch - 22m (Peak Year)

Switch lite really screwed up my Switch prediction this year! Looks like it's going to be about 19.5m-20m for the Switch in 2019, 14.3m for PS4.

Hardware sales could've been better, but that's what happens when you get arrogant and try to ride out the whole first half of the year without any A-tier new content. Hitting that 20m target is looking increasingly unlikely.

Switch selling better than the 3DS:

Quarter 3DS NSW
FY1Q4 3.61 2.74
FY1 3.61 2.74
FY2Q1 0.71 1.97
FY2Q2 2.36 2.93
FY2Q3 8.35 7.23
FY2Q4 2.10 2.93
FY2 13.52 15.06
FY3Q1 1.85 1.88
LTD 18.98 19.67

And the 3DS got an emergency price cut to $170 within months of launch whereas Switch is still $300.

I could see next quarter being slightly under 3DS which did 3.21 with 3DS XL+NSMB2.

I think it'll still be close enough to not be down LTD. Switch doing at least 2.52 for FY3Q2 is quite possible and a Direct in September could, like E3, continue the upwards sales trend as Switch hits the heavy push in Quarter 3 (October-December).

Strange, it's working perfectly for me, anyway I'll put the link below the images on op.

"Sales of Nintendo Labo series overall reached 1.39 million units... There is no revision to the financial forecast for this period originally published on April 26, 2018."

Looks like they're staying the course for that 20 million forecast. Either they are holding back a thing or two, or they're really banking on Mario Party, Pokemon, and Smash Bros. to deliver in October, November, and December, respectively.

Agreed, i meant just the one quarter.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Also good to see 3DS down 62% YOY, time for it to finally die.



Fantastic software-numbers, but not fantastic hardware-numbers. Going to be interesting to see if they actually reach that 20 million number now, they really must have faith in Smash and Pokemon
