Looking back at the previous fiscal year, one important aspect to highlight about Nintendo Switch during its first year was the huge growth of its digital business compared to past Nintendo platforms.

This graph compares the sales of digital content through our dedicated video game platform business over the past few years.

We are not disclosing the specific breakdown, but downloadable versions of packaged software and add-on content for Nintendo Switch did make a major contribution to growth in digital sales.
