Nintendo blames component shortages as Switch sales slow

Nintendo has blamed component shortages for a further slowing of Switch hardware sales, which have impacted the company’s overall sales and profit for the past financial quarter.

It’s not all bad news, however. Switch game sales remain brisk, with more games sold to consumers year-on-year and a solid start for Nintendo Switch Sports (which has now notched up 4.84m copies).

Nintendo highlighted several other first-party games to have sold well over the past three months: Mario Strikers Battle League shifted 1.91m copies, while Kirby and the Forgotten Land sold another 1.88m, taking it to a total of 4.53m and making it the best-selling Kirby game ever.
