Nintendo announced their Earnings Release: Fiscal Year Ended March 31, 2024 on May 7th, 2024. Sales of Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet have reached 24.92 million units as of March 31st, 2024. President of Nintendo Shuntaro Furukawa also announced that the Nintendo Switch successor will be announced within this fiscal year which ends on March 31st, 2025.

Sales related to Nintendo Switch Online and add-on content for titles such as Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Splatoon 3 performed well this fiscal year. While overall unit sales for software decreased, sales of downloadable versions of packaged software remained at the same level as last fiscal year, since more consumers are opting to purchase downloadable versions in recent years. With the additional effect of a rise in the foreign-currency-denominated sales amount due to the depreciation of the yen, digital sales for the full year reached the highest level to date and the digital sales ratio surpassed 50%.

Top Selling Title Sales Units - As of March 31, 2024

Pokémon Sword/Pokémon Shield - 26.27 million
Pokémon Scarlet/Pokémon Violet - 24.92 million

This is Furukawa, President of Nintendo. We will make an announcement about the successor to Nintendo Switch within this fiscal year. It will have been over nine years since we announced the existence of Nintendo Switch back in March 2015. We will be holding a Nintendo Direct this June regarding the Nintendo Switch software lineup for the latter half of 2024, but please be aware that there will be no mention of the Nintendo Switch successor during that presentation.
