That's for the entire fiscal year though, is it not?  Not the "quarter".

It's for the fiscal year. I believe next year will be bigger even though they lowered both their forecasted software and hardware sales. I'm thinking they should have raised hardware sales and lowered software. 

Thank you for the response and the clarification.

Is that important?
They have increased their profits by 33% since last year.

Well that much difference in a quarter or a year would be important yes but I only mentioned it because SethNintendo asked how much they made this quarter. Regardless, Congrats to Nintendo. 



All the games with over 10 million copies sold have received DLC except super mario party. The one game that needed DLC the most.



This is the best year for a console in this generation, no? amazing.

Zelda BOTW again increases its legend by surpassing the best-selling 3D Mario in sales.



Switch Friend Code = 5965 - 4586 - 6484

Yeah I don't understand why they aren't updating it with classic maps at least. That's the major complaint everyone seems to have about the game (aside from stars only costing 10 coins now) and it doesn't seem like it would be too much work to fix.

I remember when it first came out people were convinced there would be free updates like with Splatoon 2. I wish I could go back to the days when I believed it.

Even luigi's mansion and captain toad received dlc despite lower sales. I've been telling myself that it's just too broken to be worth fixing. It should have 10-12 maps, not four. And the four it does have are tiny. The game is poorly balanced. Whoever lands on the partner spaces first becomes significantly overpowered. Wish they would just go back to the games traditional roots.

You make a very good point.  It is conspicuous.

My guess is that they are working on making another Mario Party game for Switch while most of those other 10m+ sellers are only getting one entry on the Switch.  This isn't meant to be a comfort.  I just think that is what they are doing, so they aren't bothering with DLC.



OP updated with profits and income.

So the 9 third party games are physical releases it seems ... revise my guesses to

Dragon Quest XI
Minecraft
Mortal Kombat 11
Crash Team Racing
Cuphead
Witcher 3
Just Dance
FIFA (?)
Overwatch?

Cuphead hasn't had a physical release yet has it? I thought they were waiting on the DLC to release it all as one.

Anyway, I think the Spyro Reignited Trilogy and Team Sonic Racing could possibly be among them.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series X will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

When these 4 games came out, I was hoping for better sales. The sales are great, but not top tier by Nintendo standards. I hope they sold enough to get sequels, and more Zelda remakes. I know Fire Emblem is a somewhat niche game, but easily my favorite game on the Switch.

Luigi’s Mansion 3: 6.33m (0.96)
Super Mario Maker 2: 5.48m (0.40)
The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening: 4.38m (0.19)
Fire Emblem: Three Houses: 2.87m (0.29)

I think Luigi's Mansion is selling incredibly well! Don't see how you could be disappointed in a Luigi's Mansion game that is easily gonna surpass 10 million! It's not one of Nintendo's mega franchises so easily beating 10 million is incredible!

Link's Awakening is a bit disappointing given that it was over 3 million in like the first 11 days or whatever. I guess just everyone who wanted it pretty much got it at launch. As cool as it is, you also have to realize its a remake of a pretty short GAMEBOY game, and its selling at full price! Taking that into account and the Zelda franchise's pre-BotW sales and the fact that it will eventually break 5 million is actually fantastic!

Fire Emblem I know nothing about haha so won't comment but I didn't think that was a big selling franchise so those numbers seem pretty good to me.

Super Mario Maker 2 is the real disappointment of this list. That's a game that it would seem like it should fly over 10 million easily and fairly quickly and instead it'll be lucky if it gets close to 10 million when all is said and done.

Kirby Star Allies
Yoshi's Crafted World
Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

No update about those? I am super curious

Yeah no idea why those weren't listed when even the likes of Astral Chain were.

I'd also quite like to know how much Yoshi sold.
