    Nintendo Profit Falls 36 Percent As Hardware Sales Continues Downward Trajectory

    Nintendo finds itself in a bit of a tough spot. At one time the king of the home console market, Nintendo's modern generation hardware just isn't keeping pace with the competition in terms of sales, and as a result, profits are down. How far down depends on what you're comparing them with—net profit for the quarter was 29.1 billion yen (~$241 million), a 36 percent drop compared to last year.

    Other financial figures include 221.5 billion yen (~$1.84 billion) in revenue and an operating profit of 33.5 billion yen (~$278 million), the former down 17 percent year-over-year and the latter representing a 7 percent jump. The good news for Nintendo is that it still finished the quarter with an overall profit.


    What isn't so great news is Nintendo's continuing struggle to sell more hardware. For the last three months of 2015, Nintendo sold 1.87 million Wii U systems, down 2 percent from the same quarter a year prior, and 3.6 million handheld 3DS consoles. That brings the total number of Wii U and 3DS console sales to date to 12.6 million units and 57.94 million units, respectively.

    The Wii U had a head start on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, coming out a year before either one. However, both have a bigger install base—Sony claims 36 million PS4 consoles have been sold to date and it's estimated that Microsoft has sold around 19 million Xbox One systems so far.

    Nintendo was also affected by a comparatively weak lineup of games, though it wasn't a total wash.

    "With respect to Wii U, Splatoon sold 4.06 million units and Super Mario Maker sold 3.34 million units, making both titles blockbusters that vitalized the Wii U platform," Nintendo said. "In addition, Yoshi's Woolly World, which was released during this period, and evergreen titles released in the previous period such as Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U showed steady sales."

    Looking ahead, Nintendo is planning to launch another home console codenamed NX, along with a series of smartphone games, the first of which releases next month.

    Will the NX, mobile games, and a possible entry into VR turn around Nintendo's slumping profits?



    Nintendo’s profits were down in 2015 compared to the year before, but the company will still be happy that it’s making money – it recorded consecutive losses from 2012 up until 2014. Part of the problem is that Nintendo still relies too much on its evergreen titles such as the Super Mario and Pokemon franchises, but the company wants to change this in 2016 with the release of its first smartphone games, the NX console, and a possible foray into the VR sector.
    Nintendo’s net income was 29.1 billion yen ($241 million) in the three months to December, down 36 percent from the same period in 2014. The same 2015 quarter saw Wii U sales fall 2.1 percent and those of the 3DS drop a massive 28 percent – a bad statistic for the Christmas period. The news caused Nintendo’s shares to decline 1.7 percent in Tokyo.
    Nintendo will be looking to turn its fortunes around this year with a series of new products. Back in October, the company revealed some details of its first smartphone title, Miitomo, which is starting prelaunch registration soon.
    Fans were disappointed at the previews of Miitomo; it’s more of a social app/instant messenger with avatars rather than an actual game. But Nintendo has promised that its second smartphone title (there are five due between now and March 2017) will include one of the company’s best-known characters and “won't be another communications app.”
    The big upcoming product for Nintendo is, of course, the NX console. Analysts think the mysterious machine will be unveiled in Spring, with a possible release date coming sometime in October or November. A report from December suggests that the console may feature an elliptically-shaped controller that’s made almost entirely of either a resistive or capacitive screen.
    Later this month (27th) sees the 20th anniversary of Pokemon, which will be celebrated with a special day dedicated to the franchise and the release of a new 3DS bundle that includes Pokemon Red and Pokemon Blue pre-installed.
    Finally, reports from Nintendo’s recent investor briefing state that the company is following in the footsteps of almost every other tech giant by “looking” at the virtual reality sector. Nintendo’s president, Tatsumi Kimishima, described VR as “interesting technology,” but it may be a while before we see any products emerge from the company that introduced one of the first ever commercial VR devices – 1995’s headache-inducing Virtual Boy.
    Despite the slump in finances, Nintendo continues to profit from its Amiibo line, the increasing popularity of downloaded titles, and classic titles such as Splatoon and Super Mario maker. The worst part of 2015 for Nintendo will no doubt have been the sad loss of its much-loved CEO Satoru Iwata.

    Nintendo cuts its yearly financial forecast after low 3DS sales

    Nintendo has had to lower its annual profit forecast for the year, shrinking it by £108 million and it is not the Wii U that is dragging the company down this time but rather, the 3DS which saw lower hardware and software sales than previously expected.
    Nintendo also suffered a bit due to a recent rise in the value of the Yen. Fortunately, Nintendo’s Wii U console actually sold slightly higher than expected this year which is largely thanks to newer games like Splatoon, which managed to sell four million copies, which also happens to mean that a third of all Wii U owners have bought the game.

    Nintendo isn’t operating at a loss though, it still expects to bring in £208 million though that is down from £316 million. On top of that, 2016 is looking fairly bright with Star Fox Zero, a new Legend of Zelda game as well as Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon all coming out this year.
    Nintendo will also be announcing its next console, the NX this year. Current rumours point towards a June date for the announcement.
