I'm going to keep this thread updated with new, more updated data. I will usually update the thread yearly (around May each year since it is when Nintendo reveal the results for the full fiscal year). UPDATED WITH DATA UNTIL MARCH 2018 Note: It's shipment data provided by Nintendo itself directly from Nintendo's Public Relationship department, Nintendo official site or other reports which used Nintendo's shipment data. If you need a specific reference of the source for a game please PM me. Only games published by Nintendo which shipped more than 1 million are presented. For games released on NES, GB/C,SNES, N64 their LTDs could be considered as definitive. For games GBA and GC their LTDs can be considered as definitive, top 5 games for each are updated as March 2013 while the rest I suspect is updated as a period between 2009 and 2011 (despite the report citing December 2014). Note that while the report cites the figures are update as December 2014 I believe this is true only for WiiU and 3DS. For GBA and GC I believe they are updated as 2009-2011 (after that I think they were considered legacy hardware, some games like Pokémon shipped a few more units after). Shipment figures updated "as March 2013" came directly from Nintendo. For games released on DS, Wii, 3DS, WiiU their LTDs are updated as December 2014 or March 2018 (DS/Wii top selling games are updated as March 2018). Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask total shipment outside Japan as September 2015 was reported directly by Nintendo. Note about Pokémon: Take with a grain of salt Pokémon shipment data for Red/Blue/Green, Yellow, Gold/Silver and Crystal because the only official shipment data reported by Nintendo is that all those titles combined shipped about 76 million units. Please take the combined figure instead of the single entries for those games if you need an official source. Hardware data is shipment data provided by Nintendo itself as March 2018 (except Virtual Boy, see note below). Most of these figures can be considered close to definitive with the exception of 3DS and WiiU of course. GB contains GBC sales units as the two are considered one single platform by Nintendo. Every figure is in million of units. Include bundled units and downloaded units (for the games which had a digital copy at release so from 3DS/WiiU on ward). The first wave in the Classic NES Series / Famicom Mini Series / NES Classics for GBA have sold in total 3.92 million units worldwide as September 2004.

So may not be definitive as the system was discontinued in the fiscal year ending March 1997. * What is referred as "First-party software" is actually an approximation calculated by summing every million-seller. Since most Nintendo games sell at least 1 million units it should be a close enough approximation. LSI Game Console (essentially Pong clones) Note: More than 70% units sold were Color TV Game 15 consoles. Game & Watch Plug & Play Retro Console Software Home console Handheld console Hybrid console Grand total: As of March 2018 Nintendo has published more than 330 million seller and has sold more than 1.72 billion games. Charts: Note that what is referred as "First-party total software sales" in the graph above is actually only the sum of Nintendo million seller games. Of course some Nintendo games could have shipped less than 1 million units therefore this is really an approximation of "First-party total software sales". This approximation however should be close enough to the actual value since historically Nintendo games often ship more than 1 million units therefore composing the majority of the software sales sold by Nintendo.
