As of today's data, Nintendo Switch's total sales reached 28.83 million this fiscal year, an increase of 37% from the 21 million platforms the company shipped last year, and exceeded the company's revised forecast.

Given strong demand during the coronavirus pandemic, Nintendo raised its annual forecast for the fiscal year ending March 31 from 19 million units at the start of the year to 26.5 million units in February.

Since its launch in 2017, global lifetime sales have reached 84.59 million units, which is approximately 101.63 million units sold for Wii consoles.

Toy sales this year grew 37%, with 230.88 million copies sold, compared to 1,872 million last year, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons sold 20.85 million copies.

Other notable games include Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (10.62 million copies), Super Mario 3D All-Star (9.01 million copies), and Ring Fit Adventure (7.38 million copies).

Going forward, Nintendo plans to release the Switch Lite in blue in May.

The company is also preparing to launch more games around the world, including Miitopia in May, Mario Golf: Super Rush in June, and The Legend of Zelda: Sky Sword HD in July.

Pokémon Diamonds and Pokémon Sparkling Diamonds are scheduled to launch in the second half of 2021.

Nintendo said it is working with Niantic to develop a new Pikmin smartphone app that will be released in the second half of 2021.

Nintendo's annual revenue rose to $ 16.6 billion, up 35% from $ 11.9 billion last year, which translates into an estimated annual revenue of $ 4.4 billion.

The company expects annual sales of $ 14.6 billion through March 2022 and has 25.5 million exchanges.

Nintendo is rumored to be developing a new Switch with 4K output that should better rival the more powerful Xbox and PlayStation platforms.

The upcoming devices will include a 7-inch OLED screen manufactured by Samsung with a resolution of 720p and is expected to go into series production in June.
