  • in addition to the increase year-on-year in unit sales of both Nintendo Switch hardware and software, another main factor in this growth in net sales was the larger percentage of hardware sales accounted for by Nintendo Switch ‒ OLED Model, which has a higher unit price.
  • in the mobile and IP related business, overall sales rose by 190.1% year-on-year to 31.8 billion yen, bolstered by an increase in income from royalties and income from visual content related to The Super Mario Bros. Movie.

Atleast the Super Mario outsold Pokemon.

You got lucky Zelda. Just wait for Wonder to show up.
