As you all know, much of the world is dealing with it. coronavirus At this time, for this reason and to prevent its spread, both the governments and the health authorities of the countries are making a series of recommendations and obligations to reduce it as much as possible. Obviously, this fact has affected a multitude of sectors, including that of the video game
This is clearly reflected in the Nintendo’s annual financial report that has been shared today, where one of the consequences is the important increased digital sales.
These are the most prominent details that have been shared:
- Digital sales grew by 68,5% interannual until reaching 344.1 billion yen this fiscal year, and digital sales accounted for 42.8% of the total software sales of the video game platform.
- Downloadable versions of software, consisting mainly of Nintendo Switch titles represented the 59.3% of total digital sales
- Also increased sales of add-on / downloadable content, such as Pokémon Sword Expansion Pass, Pokémon Shield Expansion Pass, and Fighter Pass Vol.2 for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
- In addition to the growth in sales of indie titles and other downloadable software without their corresponding physical versions, sales of Nintendo Switch Online were also stable.
