Nintendo Fiscal Year Sales Numbers

PresidentSatoruIwata$4.465 billion. That’s how much money Nintendo has in “cash and deposits” sitting in the bank. $9.168 billion. That’s how much their total current assets are worth. They’re slightly down from the same time three months ago. Nintendo attributes this mostly to the changing exchange rates between the yen and the dollar.

This comes from Nintendo’s most recent business meeting. During the meeting they also anounced that they posted a net profit for the first time in four years, this time in the amount of $350 million. They also expect profits to double over the next year partly due to “a new source of revenue is expected from a gaming application for smart devices which will be released this year.”

Other highlights for the year include Wii U selling 3.38 million units, slightly below their 3.6 million unit forcast. 3DS beat expectations selling 8.73 million units. The systems sold 24.4 millino and 62.7 million units of software respectively.
