In its report for the six months ended September 30, Nintendo revealed that Switch has sold 22.86 million units so far. Tied at 2.1 million are ARMS, the youngest IP on the list, and Kirby Star Allies; another title released earlier this year, maintaining steady numbers as it's close to having doubled its sales from August.
Traditionally, the final quarter of the calendar year accounts for a large portion of video game and video game hardware sales.
"The PlayStation is doing great, Spider-Man sold like insane in the second quarter", said Kazunori Ito, an analyst at Morningstar Investment Services in Tokyo.
"Sales of other popular titles that were released during previous fiscal years and titles released by other software publishers continued to grow, bringing the total number of million-seller titles during this period to nine", Nintendo said.
Nintendo's operating profit for the second quarter was up about 30 percent, to $274 million.
Nintendo said its results were helped strong sales of Switch games including Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (1.67 million units; May release) and Mario Tennis Aces (2.16 million units; June release). "The holiday season battle begins now". Of course there were popular non-Nintendo titles made for the GameCube - hello, Resident Evil franchise - but the most popular games for the console were nearly invariably first-party. "From the beginning we decided on a target that would be challenging to reach, not easy", said Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa following the results.
