So the least expensive option overall is the most popular, and this is somehow surprising.

Nintendo held an investor's briefing this morning (JP time)/tonight to follow along from the earlier financial results, and several items have emerged from it. The full presentation can be viewed here (PDF link), with the Q&A to follow in a few days.

  • The Switch Online launch has met expectations internally at Nintendo, though the takeup of the US$20 or equivalent annual subscription was higher than the company anticipated.
  • Nearly half of all Switches have downloaded Fortnite so far, suggesting a total download count of approximately 11 million.
  • Octopath Traveler, the major new release for the quarter, has sold more than 1 million units to consumers (both physical and digital).
  • Although not included in the Q2 financials, Super Mario Party has sold approximately 1.5m units since its October 5 launch.
  • Approximately 50 million Amiibo figures have been sold so far.
  • The NES and SNES Classic have combined to sell over 10 million units worldwide.
  • Dragalia Lost has pulled in sales of nearly 4 billion yen since its September 27 launch.
  • Fire Emblem Heroes will be getting a "major" update, to version 3, before the end of the calendar year.
