A lot of interesting news came out of yesterday’s investor meeting, including amiibo sales numbers and the company’s interest in Virtual Reality; not to mention the big financial report that provided the world with a better understanding of where the company stands at the moment. Among these pieces of news was coverage of amiibo numbers. If you’ve been following this popular the toys-to-life line, these high numbers probably won’t shock you!

Global amiibo shipments have reached 31 million, and 9.9 million of those were shipped in the last quarter.

And here’s a breakdown of popular amiibo according to region:
