Nintendo Switch OLED Sales Pass 5.8 Million

Nintendo updated its Switch OLED sales data in its Fiscal Year Ended March 2022 report. The new iteration of the system debuted in October 2021. Now, we know exactly how it performed worldwide. The system passed 5.80 million units sold globally.

In total, the Nintendo Switch sales are at 107.65 million worldwide. During this past fiscal year, 23.06 million consoles were sold. Of those 23.06 million sales, 13.56 were standard models, 3.70 million were Switch Lite systems, and 5.80 million were OLED versions. This means that the OLED version ended up outselling the Lite variant that debuted in September 2019.

Rather than a Switch Pro, the OLED model is a slightly updated version of the original system. It features an OLED screen, a longer stand, and a dock with wired LAN port. It also features more storage than a standard Switch or Switch Lite, as it offers 64GB of space instead of 32GB.

Nintendo also noted in the report that, in general, Switch console sales went down. Compared to the 2021 Fiscal Year report, there is a 20% difference. The Switch Lite sales went down the most in comparison. While in the 2022 fiscal year 3.70 million units were sold, 8.51 Switch Lites were sold worldwide in the 2021 Fiscal Year.

The Nintendo Switch, Switch Lite, and Switch OLED are all available worldwide.
