Nintendo Switch Has Shipped 92.87 Million Units; Full Year Prediction Lowered to 24 Million Units

Today Nintendo announced an update to the number of Switch units shipped worldwide since the console’s release.

Today  Nintendo announced its quarterly financial results and published an update to the number of Switch units shipped worldwide since the console’s release.

The data is updated as of September 30, 2021, when the latest fiscal quarter (which began on July 1) ended.

Specifically, the infographic below shows exactly how many Nintendo Switch units have been shipped to retailers. 92.87 million units of the hybrid console have found a friendly store shelf.

This means that the console has shipped 3.83 million units worldwide during the quarter (compared to 3.3 million PS5 and 0.2 million PS4 units shipped by Sony in the same period).

The press release also includes the outlook for the full fiscal year ending on March 31, 2022. Nintendo predicts to ship 24 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 25.5 million units to be sold during this fiscal year due to the ongoing semiconductor shortage. On the other hand, the forecast for the software units to be shipped during the fiscal year has been increased from 190 million to 200 million.
