Nintendo’s 2017 net income caps at $2.58 billion

Published on January 3, 2018

It would be an understatement to say that Nintendo is doing well for themselves. The game developer has managed to go well and above the “doing well” phrase. The company has managed to surpass its own expectations, let alone the expectations of its fans and followers. This especially comes across as a surprise because Nintendo was a bit of an underperformer for the longest time possible. In fact, experts were even led to believe that Nintendo wouldn’t last for too long in a market where giants like Sony and Microsoft already rule over the hearts of most.

As noted by Game Zone, their progress has been an impressive one. Information regarding Nintendo’s 2017 performance showed up on the last day of the year, i.e. 31st December. On the basis of the analytics published online, it is safe to assume that the game developer managed to showcase a rise of 84.7 percent over the last year.

It goes without saying that Nintendo did face its own share of difficulty, which began with the sale of Wii. They managed to single-handedly boost Wii’s sale to $12.36 billion in the span of nine months. With an operating income of $3.69 billion, a rise of 135.1 percent can be seen. The net income of the gaming community has risen up to 2.42 billion, which is a 96.3 percent rise.

“As for the Wii, the hardware units sold is totaled at 20.13 million worldwide, with 4.99 million moved in Japan, 8.85 million in the New World, and 6.30 million to the rest,” the report by Game Zone read.

The number doesn’t even include the sale that they managed to make for Switch gaming consoles. Thanks to popular gaming titles like The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, Mario Party DS, Pokemon Pearl/Diamond and Brain Age 2, the Switch hybrid gaming console remains to be among the most popular gaming console of the age.
