This Video Shows Nintendo Switch VR Is Already Possible

Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime

The company is projecting that the Switch will ship over 10 million units by the end of the financial year. The last time Nintendo's sales grew was in the year ended March 2009, when Wii demand drove profit to a record 555 billion yen. The 3DS saw a 7% increase from the previous year, with Pokemon Go leading a bulk of those sales.

Pokémon Sun and Moon sold a whopping 15.44m copies, while Super Mario Maker for 3DS sold 2.34. Microsoft hasn't been very forthcoming with console sales numbers, though it did confirm 10 million units had shipped - not sold, mind you - by November 2014, a year after launch.

"Since the March 3 Switch launch, Nintendo has outperformed TOPIX, but probably not beyond the point where pre-launch expectations are priced in; we doubt the success/failure of the real game console cycle is properly reflected".

As a result of this early success, Nintendo has set a confident projection for fiscal year 2018. "Your new Nintendo God is the Switch!"

While Nintendo only owns a portion of Pokemon Go, the mobile game proved to be a moneymaker for the company. Nintendo Switch software sales were just as impressive, hitting 5.46 million units totally, including physical cartridge, bundles, and digital game sales. And, unlike its two rivals which are sold as bundles with a game at those prices, Switch does not come with one. Both of these games were released at the same time as the hardware. But what if some of those games that might be better suited to bolster your new platform are being put on your aging "other" platform that, while very successful and already in a lot of homes, is well past its prime?

Did you buy a Switch in March and did you pick up a copy of Zelda?

Warriors move on with a sweep of the Trail Blazers
Golden State almost scored 50 points in the first quarter ... and would have, if they hadn't missed five free throws. Golden State promptly scored the first 14 points and led by as many as 28 in a breathtaking 45-point first quarter.

Nintendo detailed the numbers in its 2016 sales report, published this morning, which also painted a positive picture of 3DS.

You can't gather excessively about a consol's market performance from the month it was first launched since deals are regularly managed by what number of units were available.

It will be interesting to see, however, whether Nintendo manages to keep the momentum going.

The big question mark is on holiday 2017, when Nintendo plans to release Super Mario Odyssey.

Aside from Zelda, Nintendo mentioned just one other game in its earnings release - 1-2 Switch - and it only mentions briefly that the title has been "generating buzz". That's 20 percent of the lifetime sales of the Wii U.
