Nintendo's FY2021 results give sales updates on Zelda, Pokemon, Xenoblade, Ring Fit, and more

Nintendo has posted its full financial results for the company's fiscal year ending March 31, 2021, and we've gotten some sales number updates for a handful of Nintendo's RPG offerings.

As usual, there's always quite a bit to sift through if you want information on all of Nintendo's catalog, but here at RPG Site, we'll focus on the RPG (or related) sales data. We're looking at Zelda, Pokemon, Xenoblade, Ring Fit, and Paper Mario.


Most of these sales number updates are small bumps from those reported one quarter ago. The exception is the sales update for The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, having been added to this most recent report for passing 1 million sales in the fiscal year in Q4.

Up to date sales numbers are as follows.

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - 22.28 million (up from 21.45 million)

  • Pokemon Sword / Pokemon Shield - 21.10 million (up from 20.35 million)

  • Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee - 13.28 million (up from 13.00 million)

  • Ring Fit Adventure - 10.11 million (up from 8.68 million)

  • Paper Mario: The Origami King - 3.12 million (up from 3.05 million)

  • Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition - 1.52 million (up from 1.48 million)

  • The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening - 5.49 million (last known numbers was 4.38 million one year ago)

After a record-breaking year, Nintendo's forecasts for FY2022 expect lower sales in both Hardware and Software compared to FY2021. However, it is worth noting that Nintendo has upped its forecasts dramatically in the past mid-year before.
