"Next let's talk about Nintendo Switch Online, the paid subscription service that expands the online functionality of the Nintendo Switch".

Revenue was also boosted by the sale of more than 47 million games for the console, as well as consistent sales for its 3DS handheld console. It's no surprise, with games like Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and more helping the system achieve a high level of popularity among gamers. The company's earnings reports indicate that Nintendo experienced a 261% revenue bump from a year ago. Here are the most absurd numbers we found that highlight Nintendo's return to dominance. For some context, the Wii U launched in 2012 and was sunset in 2017.

In that sense, Nintendo stated the following: "The second year is important".
