Nintendo Plans to Release 'Cheaper' Switch by End of June

Marion JacobsApr 26, 2019

The company had 23 million-selling Switch titles across the entire year, with flagship releases like Super Smash Bros.

According to the publisher, the Switch is now at 34.47 million units sold worldwide. That's not quite the 20 million unit goal that the company set for itself, but it's impressive nonetheless.

As for the other rumored Switch model, Bloomberg's sources say that a more powerful Switch is not in the works, but that the standard Switch will receive "a modest upgrade" before the end of the year.

The Nintendo Switch console has sold 32.27 million units worldwide as of December 31.

The initial reveal of Nintendo Switch was a commercial-style video in October 2016, followed by a more detailed reveal event in January 2017, and then the hardware launch in March.

Nintendo sold 16.95 million Switch consoles in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2019, narrowly missing its revised projection of 17 million units. Annual sales rose 14% to 1.2 trillion yen ($10.7 billion).

And of course there's the 3DS, which continues to perform strong but obviously wind-down, with 2.55 million hardware units being sold (down 60.2%) and 13.22 million software units (down 62.9%).

In total, net sales for Nintendo as a whole reached ¥11,055,682 million ($ 9.66 billion), up 115.8% yoy.

For months we've heard rumors about a smaller, cheaper Nintendo Switch that could come out sometime in 2019. A second pro model is also slated for release some time this year.

Furukawa added that he has nothing to announce on potential new hardware, but that Nintendo is always developing hardware internally.
