May 26, 2017

The world’s largest video game retailer has Nintendo to thank for its first sales increase in five quarters.

GameStop says sales of collectibles and impressive sales of Nintendo Switch drove a “particularly strong” 

quarter.


Nintendo has said in the past that it sold 2.74 million units worldwide during April, with more than 5.4 

million software units sold since the console went on sale in March.


Despite the company reporting a fiscal Q1 revenue and profit increase that went above and beyond analyst 

expectations, that company’s shares still fell $1.42 or 6 percent to $22.20.


GameStop says “same store sales” rose by 2.3 percent, something helped by the debut and continued 

success of the Nintendo Switch.
