Nintendo Profits Soar 400 Percent Amidst Pandemic

In part due to sales of ‘Animal Crossing.’

According to a report by Kotaku, Nintendo‘s operating profits increased 427.7 percent from April to June 2020, a likely side effect of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

As revealed in the company’s latest financial statement, Animal Crossing: New Horizons was its best-selling game, totaling 10.63 million units sold during the three-month period. The Nintendo Switch, which sold out in the U.S. during the early stages of quarantine, saw a 33 percent increase in sales during Q2 of 2020. “COVID-19 created some difficulties in procuring the parts required for manufacturing Nintendo Switch consoles, but the overall production situation has almost recovered,” a statement by the company reads.
