One of the things that many industry people and fans look for whenever Nintendo releases their quarterly numbers is the sales numbers for certain new games.
Because with the Nintendo Switch, they seem to have a LOT of million-sellers, and the Q1 results for this fiscal year prove that true once again. As three new games can enter that realm via New Pokemon Snap, Mario Golf Super Rush, and the Switch version of Miitopia.
In terms of specific numbers, there you go:
New Pokemon Snap – 2.07 million
Mario Golf: Super Rush – 1.34 million
Miitopia – 1.04 million
These are impressive numbers for various reasons. Not the least of which is that it proves how New Pokemon Snap was right to come back, the Nintendo sports titles are still doing well (just like Mario Tennis Aces) and yet another Wii U port gets a new life on a new system.
We’ll be breaking this down even more on the next episode of the Nintendo Entertainment Podcast so stay tuned for that!
