During its latest quarterly financial results briefing last month, Nintendo said Switch’s global lifetime sales stood at 129.53 million by the mid-point of 2023.
Driven by the release of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Nintendo shipped 3.91 million Switch units during the three-month period ended in June, which was up 13.9% year-over-year.
Nintendo forecasts it will sell 15 Switch million consoles during the current fiscal year ending on March 31, 2024, which would represent a 16.5% year-over-year decline.
According to VGC sources, the company has dispatched Switch 2 development kits to key partners, with a launch planned for the second half of 2024. Officially, Nintendo is yet to comment on plans for its next console.
The platform holder also showed off tech demos for its Nintendo Switch successor behind closed doors at Gamescom, it’s understood.
