In this case, we see that Super Mario Bros. Wonder had a “solid start in sales” with almost 12 million, but that other games also saw significant growth during this fiscal year.

Pikmin 4 with its 3.33 million in sales or Luigi’s Mansion 3 with nearly 14 million games sold. Nintendo assures that the release of Super Mario Bros: The Movie had a positive impact on Mario game sales.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe saw sales of 6.79 million units […] the total number of titles with million-selling sales during this period was 24, including titles from other publishers,” they claim.

They also mentioned that “Nintendo Switch sales continued to be steady in the seventh year since its launch.

With hardware sales of 13.74 million units (7.8% year-on-year decline) and software sales of 163.95 million units (4.7% year-on-year decline) in this period“.

According to the company, they have now sold more than 1.200.10 million games for Nintendo Switch worldwide; figures to be fully proud of.

Now that Nintendo has updated its fiscal data with a Switch that has sold over 139 million units, we wonder if the console has a known limit.
