Image for News: Nintendo Weekly Wrap Up -13 May 2020

Nintendo unveiled a plethora of updates last week in their fiscal earnings report. We have condensed a large number of stories into this small excerpt so be sure to follow the links to each story. Incredibly the Nintendo Switch has now sold over 55 million units worldwide, considering how hard it must be to ship stock out from the manufacturers. However revised figures mean that Nintendo only expects to sell 19 million consoles in the next financial year, which would be a 9.6% year-on-year drop. Even worse, Nintendo have also said to expect delays if the effects of the current virus worsen

The global situation has also seen many projects sidelined throughout the year. This has been made evident as Nintendo reconfirms release windows for major Switch games, and it's a pretty small list with 2020 looking rather bare. 

In more positive news Nintendo have listed the top ten best-selling Nintendo Switch games as of March 2020. These lists are always an interesting read to see how certain games are performing over a given time, especially given that sales figures for hardware are so high. Likewise, Nintendo have also unveiled the top ten best-selling games for Wii U, 3DS, Wii and DS (as of March 2020)

It does look like the Nintendo 3DS is now on its last legs. 3DS sales see 73% year-on-year decline, with no future sales forecast provided.
