This graph shows download sales from the latest three accounting periods up to the second quarter of this accounting period.

In this fiscal year, second quarter sales were less than the first-quarter sales, but the first half totaled 21.0 billion yen, which is double the figure of the previous first half and is the all-time high for first-half download sales historically.

The increase chiefly arises from the sales of add-on content.

In particular, the add-on content for Smash Bros. and Mario Kart 8 made large contributions.
