In the near-three years that the Switch has been on the market, it has quickly become one of Nintendo’s strongest products ever. As it currently stands, it’s the company’s cash cow.
Industry analyst Daniel Ahmad has put together a pie chart that breaks down Nintendo’s revenue streams for Q2 of Nintendo’s 2019 fiscal year. With new data obtained from the company’s recent financial report, it shows that the Switch makes up a whopping 93% of the company’s revenue. The 3DS accounts for a mere sliver of the pie at a meager 2%. Considering that the system is now a whopping eight years old, this is to be expected.
Here is a look at Q2 revenue breakdown.

Mobile is still a small percentage.

Despite the 3DS dropping show sharply in revenue share, Nintendo has yet to announce a formal closure of the platform. New units of some models are still being produced, and it looks like that will remain to be the case at least until next year. However, if it will be very surprising if by next year October the 3DS is still officially around.
