Nintendo put the world on notice: It’s taking things to a new level. 

On Tuesday, the Japanese-based video game company showcased a slew of new offerings during E3, the planet’s premier video game trade event. 

E3’s Nintendo Direct presentation marked the last show of the four-day, all-virtual event and a big moment for the Nintendo’s best-selling console ever, the Switch. 

Released in March 2017, lifetime sales of the Switch have reached 84.59 million units with 587 million units of software sold.

Things do not appear to be slowing down for the portable console, either. 

Nintendo sold 4.7 million Switch units in fiscal Q4 and expects to sell another 27 million by March 2022. 

The “Mario” and “Legend of Zelda” publisher has plenty in store for the fall season. 

  • Revealed the latest installment in the “Metroid” series. “Metroid Dread” is set for release Oct. 8 on the Switch. 
  • Announced the release of “Mario Party Superstars” on Oct. 29.
  • Revealed a “Legend of Zelda” game and watch device that will feature three classic “Zelda” titles, scheduled to release Nov. 12. 

For its fiscal year spanning April 1, 2020 to March 31, 2021, Nintendo reported $16.1 billion in revenue, a 34% increase year-over-year. The company generated $3.2 billion in fiscal Q4 with the help of 3.6 million Switch units sold during the quarter. 

Nintendo is also slated to release a new Switch model during the 2021 holiday season.
