Hot Switch sales boost Nintendo sales, trim quarterly loss

At that price, New 2DS XL serves as a middle ground between the existing 2DS and 3DS systems, while combining appealing features from both models. That's only five times the amount of Switch machines sold already.

The Nintendo Switch will be launched alongside two new games for the Nintendo 3DS consoles - Hey!Pikmin and Miitopia. The handheld will hit the market for $150, making it almost twice the price of the current Nintendo 2DS ($80), but cheaper than the Nintendo 3DS XL ($199).

There are over a thousand games in the Nintendo 3DS game library and more are always on the way, including two that launch on the same day as New Nintendo 2DS XL.

Furthermore, Nintendo revealed that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sales figure. As the name 2DS of the new game system implies, visuals will be displayed in 2D only.

Remember when Nintendo's handhelds were clearly named (GameBoy, GameBoy Pocket, GameBoy Color, GameBoy Advance) and didn't sound like a word jumble?

For one, the 2DS XL will only allow you to play 2D videos.


You still get the same clamshell design of the current DS consoles but this comes in cool new black and turquoise or white and orange colour options.

The company has sold 13.56 million Wii Us in total, in its four-and-a-half-year lifespan. "This title has become something of a hot topic due to the way it uses Nintendo Switch in some unconventional ways compared to other game systems".

Nintendo has made it clear the system is a statement of intent in the post-Switch world, with the console-handheld hybrid leading many to question whether the company would slowly move away from dedicated handhelds.

Nintendo said it sold 2.74 million Switch consoles in March alone.

The Kyoto, Japan-based company reported the numbers in its earnings report for the fiscal year ended March 2017.

As mentioned earlier, the device has an 82 percent larger display compared to the 3DS XL.
