DLC was the primary driver of this digital revenue.
Nintendo’s digital sales have increased every year since 2013, and that trend is set to continue again this year when Nintendo closes the books on March 31st, 2016. Nintendo has already generated as much digital revenue through the first three quarters of the current fiscal year as they did in the entire previous year. The Americas were the top region for digital revenue, followed by Japan and then Europe. You can check out Nintendo’s presentation slides by clicking the gallery below.
