Nintendo confirms its status as the queen of portable consoles! More than 500 billion units sold

One of the hallmarks of Nintendo are its portable consoles, many of which marked our childhood. The Japanese brand has now revealed that it has sold more than 500 billion handheld consoles, consolidating its position as one of the most successful manufacturers in history.

Sales figures refer to all handheld consoles, from the iconic Game Boy to the latest Nintendo Switch. The console that sold the most in the history of the Japanese brand was even the Nintendo DS, with more than 150 million units sold. The Game Boy Color was also a great success, selling 118 million and the Game Boy Advance reached 80 million consoles sold.

When looking at these numbers, it should be noted that the Nintendo Switch is in fourth position but it was only released 4 years. With the brand betting on its continuity, it is likely that the console can climb some positions in this ranking, especially if we really see the arrival of a Pro model.

So far the Switch has already outsold the giants of the 3DS and Wii U, not forgetting that it has already surpassed several home consoles, such as the GameCube and the beloved Nintendo 64.

The Japanese brand usually releases a new console every 5 or 6 years, but perhaps the success of the Switch has been slowing down the cadence of new releases. Instead of a new console, Nintendo should launch a revamped version of its current offering, with 4K capabilities, a larger screen, and more autonomy.

All in all, the future looks bright for the manufacturer that brought us some of the most beloved gaming machines in video game history. Now that we are experiencing a true boom in the gaming industry, Nintendo will have even more reason to cement its dominance in the market and continue to delight fans around the world.
