Thanks to the continued success of the Nintendo Switch and record-breaking sales of social simulation game "Animal Crossing: New Horizons", Nintendo's operating profit skyrocketed in the first quarter of its new fiscal year, smashing analyst expectations. With sales of 358 billion yen ($3.4b) and operating profit of 144.7 billion yen ($1.4b), Nintendo finished the June quarter with results it normally only achieves in the three months leading up to Christmas, illustrating both the positive momentum the company has built and the effect of the coronavirus pandemic on video game sales.


As our chart shows, Nintendo has now sold more than 61 million Switch systems, bringing it within breathing distance of the Nintendo Entertainment System. The iconic 8-bit console, originally released in 1985, was sold 61.91 million times during its lifespan, leading the Nintendo Switch by less than half a million units.


Most recently, the Switch surpassed the beloved Super Nintendo Entertainment System in lifetime sales, making it the third most popular home console in Nintendo's long history.
