Vendas da Nintendo Switch ultrapassam as da antecessora 3DS

By Ninian Carter

February 5, 2021 - A Nintendo vendeu quase 80 milhões de unidades do seu sistema de jogos de vídeo híbrido Switch, eclipsando o seu antecessor, o 3DS.

Nintendo's hugely successful games console, the Nintendo Switch, has sold 79.9 million units, according to the Japanese firm's latest financial statements.

The news is all the more startling given the Switch has been on sale for less than four years, whereas the 3DS went on sale 10 years ago, only being discontinued in September 2020.

Nintendo posted record profits of $3.6 billion for the period April to December 2020, buoyed by 30 million sales of its gentle social game, Animal Crossing, which is proving hugely popular during Covid-19 lockdowns around the world.
