Nintendo Switch sales are on the decline, but the console has hit a new record for total sales

While software sales were down 4% year-on-year, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet saw massive success upon release, with the latest mainstream Pokemon games selling 20.61 million units so far, making last year’s entry the fourth best-selling Pokemon game of all time.

Nintendo added that “unit sales of first-party software continue at the highest levels seen since the launch of Nintendo Switch” and that Nintendo Switch Online revenue increased, helping to push its digital revenue gains up to $2.3 billion, a 21.5% increase year-on-year.
