Nintendo was reckless enough to let the Switch’s Joy-Con drift issue seep into the Lite, but that oversight didn’t stop Mario and Zelda fans from waiting for the portable’s inevitable revision. The company’s latest quarterly report revealed that 1.95M were sold in just 11 days, fueling sales of titles such as Link’s Awakening (3.13M copies) and Super Mario Maker 2 (3.93M). Overall Switch sales are now closing in on 42M worldwide.
Nintendo Switch sold just shy of 7m units total for the six months ended September 30th (up 36 per cent year-on-year), and 58.49m Switch games (up 38 per cent year-on-year). Digital game sales are up considerably, Nintendo noted, with downloadable software revenue spiking 83 per cent year-on-year.
