The Switch leads Nintendo into the green

The new 2DS XL is coming out later this week, however, and that should boost those numbers, along with premiere releases coming later this year including a Pikmin follow-up and Pokémon Sun and Moon semi-sequels. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is even more impressive, achieving 3.54 million sales even though it was only released on April 28.

What's more notable is the performance of the Switch, with the latest figures showing 4.7 million units have been sold worldwide in less than four months. In addition, the software for this platform had 8.14 million pieces distributed.

Nintendo sold 1.97 million Switch consoles in the period from April to June but kept its sales forecast unchanged at 10 million despite heavy demand. That brings the total sales of the device to 4.7 million units.

It looks as if ARMS could end up soundly surpassing the sales of 1-2-Switch at its current pace.

Japan's Nintendo Co Ltd on Wednesday said it swung to a profit in the first quarter, beating analyst estimates, due to strong demand for its Switch console. "The profit attributable to owners of parent for this quarter was 21.2 billion yen".

All of that translates into good news for Nintendo's finances. On the software front, we are releasing Hey! Given that Nintendo is light years away from the infrastructure to support a proper first-party MMO, it's probably the next best thing. Listed among those games was the in-development Pokemon game, with the title being given a rather vague schedule for launch of "2018 or later" by the company. We plan to launch this system globally in September and October.

Nintendo also revealed that income from smartphone apps such as Super Mario Run and Fire Emblem Heroes stood at ¥9 billion (£62.2 million).
