After seeing that forecast reduction for hardware, I'm guessing that we won't get a direct until March.

That dont make sense. Pls explain.

Nintendo reports there are now 20 million sellers for the Switch.

And 8 of those 20 are third party.

Other interesting bits:

Mario Kart Tour got delayed to Summer 2019, was planned to be a Spring release. They say its to improve quality

No changes to financial forcast. Only for Units (hardware -3M, software +10M)

They only mention NSMBUD and Yoshi for Q4 so there probably won't be any announcements. They point to 3rd party for this quarter.

3DS is left to its fate. (-60% for hardware and software YoY)

Digital has had a 95% increase YoY
Mobile has a 15% increase YoY

NES and SNES classic combined at 5.83M

Well, at this stage it looks like 3DS is not going to reach the lifetime sales of the GBA or PSP, leaving it as as Nintendo's lowest selling portable and falling short of even the loser of last gen's portable war.

Some fun facts:
Since release, Splatoon 2 has shipped 3.33 million in Japan. Should eventually leg it out to 4 million.
I'm actually interested in seeing which game will reach that mark first, Splatoon 2, Smash Bros., Animal Crossing, or Pokemon Gen 8?

Also, the Switch version of Breath of the Wild has shipped 1.46 million in Japan alone, which means the Switch version by itself has surpassed Ocarina of Time. And depending on how much the Wii U version shipped (120k in one month), by now Breath of the Wild has probably become the best selling Zelda game of all time in Japan, even surpassing the original.

Pokemon, Super Mario Party and Smash did extremely well and the quarterly numbers for Switch were good.

It's obvious Labo has been a flop and not driven hardware sales in anyway whatsoever. It was clear Nintendo anticipated Labo helping drive Switch up to 20 million units. The revision down to 17 million now seems too conservative - if sales remain flat versus last year, shipments would come in at ~17.4 million. I'm still expecting a quarter in the 3 to 3.5 million range, so 17 to 17.9 million for the financial year, which keeps Switch tracking similarly to PS4, launch-aligned.

The lesson to Nintendo should be to pace their releases consistently. Here's hoping Luigi's Mansion 3, Animal Crossing and Pokemon generation 8 are paced out, with the smaller titles (Fire Emblem, Daemon X Machina, Marvel Ultimate Alliance etc) coming at a regular clip, too. A Direct in the next couple of weeks seems likely, given the leaks of third party ports this week (AC 3, Darksiders).

Agree, Q1 and Q3 were slower than expected for Nintendo, and most likely they expecting that Labo will move much more units.

INSANE SALES FOR SMASH ULTIMATE!!!!
Pokemon reached 10mil!!!! Any comparisons to past pokemon games? I think it did amazingly considering how much they changed the gameplay.
Splatoon 2 is getting really close to 10mil!!!

RIP 20 million! Nice knowing that I believed in you........

And Super Mario Party crosses 5mil!!!! Probably the only party game right now that can pull these numbers!
And any comparisons to past Mario Tennis games?

Pokemon games for reference

SM - 14.69m (3.81m Japan / 10.88m ROTW)
XY - 11.61m (4.34m Japan / 7.27m ROTW)
Let's Go 10.0m (1.85m Japan / 8.16m ROTW)
ORAS - 9.35m (2.92m Japan / 6.43m ROTW)
USUM - 7.71m (2.37m Japan / 5.3m ROTW)

Weaker in Japan but much stronger in the west.
