Nintendo published a report summarizing the second quarter of its fiscal year. Apart from the topic of income, a lot of interesting information has also been revealed, including upcoming game releases.

Nintendo’s latest report isn’t just a financial summary accordingly The Japanese company has sold nearly 93 million copies of the Switch console (It’s slowly getting closer to the Wii record), but also the emphasis that the platform isn’t just aimed at younger users. Additionally, the company has shared the game’s premiere schedule for 2022.

What seems to be the most interesting in the entire report is the data regarding the age group of Switch owners who have actively used the console over the past year. The largest group are players in the 20-30 age group, after which this number begins to decline. The same is true for the smaller Nintendo community?? Teens do not constitute a large group of users. So the Switch isn’t necessarily a kids’ console

Moving on to financial topics?? Compared to the first half of the previous year, Nintendo’s hardware sales fell 9%. According to the company, this result is due to the premiere of the game Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which took place in March 2020 and significantly affected the amount of equipment sold. The next report might be interesting, due to the Nintendo Switch OLED premiereWhich may lead to a slight increase in sales statistics.
