Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition has sold 1.32 million; Ring Fit Adventure 4 million; Pokemon Sword/Shield at 18.22 million

Nintendo has released its quarterly financials for Q1 of the 2021 fiscal year (April 2020 through June 2020), and we have gotten some sales number updates on some big Nintendo RPGs.


Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition has sold 1.32 million units worldwide as of June 30. To put that in perspective, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 sold 1.31 million units within its first few months, so the two games have had similar starts. To note, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 has sold more than 1.7 million units as of March 2019, a year and some change after its initial launch.

Additionally, Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield are now up to a combined 18.22 million as of the end of June (up from 17.37 last quarter). This new milestone has it surpassing the cumulative sales of Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl (17.67 million), making it the best selling Pokemon title since Pokemon Gold and Pokemon Silver (which are reportedly around 23 million).

Nintendo also revealed that exercise RPG Ring Fit Adventure has sold-through more than 4 million units as of the end of July. Nintendo also specifically notes that demand for the game was much higher than forecasted and has increased production in order to better meet that demand.

Outside of the RPG sphere, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has now sold more than 22 million units, making it the second best selling Nintendo Switch game after Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
