During the 6 month period April - September, Nintendo earned $1.6 billion in revenue. It's net profit was $131.5 million. During the same period the company sold 1.12 million Wii U's which is up 510,000 quarter-over-quarter. Hyrule Warriors launched at the end of the accounting period. The big game which seems to have revived Wii U sales figures is Mario Kart 8. In terms of software Nintendo sold 5 million units of Wii U, which is up from 4.4 million sold in quarter 1. Nintendo 3DS sold 1.27 million units, which is up on quarter 1 sales of 820,000 units. During the same period Nintendo sold 14.73 million units of software.
Super Smash Bros. 3DS has sold 3.2 million units, and Tomodachi Life has enjoyed sales of 1.27 million units.
From the look of things, it seems Nintendo may actually make a profit this year.
I wonder if these sales figures will finally make third parties realize that Wii U can generate sales after all.
