The data is updated as of December 31, 2021, when the latest fiscal quarter (which began on October 1) ended.

Specifically, the infographic below shows exactly how many Nintendo Switch units have been shipped to retailers. 103.54 million units of the hybrid console have hit the shelves before the end of the Holidays (at least in the west. In Japan, the Holidays end in January). We also get to see software units, and numbers for older consoles.

This means that the console has shipped 10.67 million units worldwide during the quarter (compared to 3.9 million PS5 and 200,000 PS4 units shipped by Sony in the same period).

On top of that, it overtook the shipment records for both the Switch and the original PlayStation.

The press release also includes the outlook for the full fiscal year ending on March 31, 2022. Nintendo predicts to ship 23 million Switch units in the twelve-month period, which would bring the total to 108.59 million units if the goal was achieved.

This is lower than the previous forecast that mentioned 24 million units to be sold during this fiscal year published in November, which was already lower than the initial 25.5 million forecast.

That being said, the forecast for software units has been raised again to 220 million from 200 million.

If you want to compare, you can check out the previous update that was released in November and was related to the fiscal quarter that ended on September 30, 2021.

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
