Nintendo Posts Best Financial Results Since 2011

Post by Zero Revolution on Wed Jul 29, 2015 10:20 am

Nintendo has posted their best quarterly financial results since 2011, attributing the success to Splatoon.

- Generated more than $729 million (90 billion yen) in sales, up from the same period lat year

- Operating income of $9.3 million (1.1 billion yen)

- Analysts were expecting a loss of around 1 million, so a major improvement from last year

- First positive operating income since 2011

- Nintendo attributes the success to Splatoon, which has so far sol 1.62 million copies

- The company expects to generate $4.6 billion in sales and $404 million in operating income for the rest of fiscal 2016
Awesome! I'm glad Splatoon has been such a huge success, it is pretty insane that the one popular game turned around their financial results so much. (although, obviously it's not the only thing that helped, I'm sure Amiibo and 3DS sales have to do with it as well)

Perfect!
Now, about NX, please don't release it next year...
The Wii U is actually gaining on the Xbox One.

^ What? Have you even seen the Xbox One sales numbers? Lol.

But it's definitely going up YoY and releasing NX next year would lose consumer trust...it would be a really bad business idea...come on Nintendo, look at the direction SEGA went...

Smash probably helped too I'd think.

Splatoon yeah makes sense for these sales though.
Overall glad to see this report for Nintendo. Razz

It was mostly the amiibo, Splatoon and Smash DLC they got them back into the green section. It's nice to see Nintendo balance back though.
