  • Unpatchable, Nintendo Switch Hacked Hack Tool Released Publicly

Hardware Nintendo Switch sales reached 17.79 million units globally, thus surpassing the forecast. In the end, just over 15 million were sold with the total now edging towards 18 million. All up, 63.51 million software units were sold during the fiscal year.

The company also revealed that more than 10.41 million copies of Super Mario Odysesey were sold during the year, while Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sold 9.22 million units and Splatoon 6.02 million units. The Mario brand continues to sell like hot cakes, which is apparent considering that they have two Mario-themed games sitting near the 10-million-units-sold mark.

Nintendo has just reported its financial results for the year, and the results are absolutely staggering.

"Ultimately Mr. Iwata was the head of development, so he put a lot of thought and time into Switch", said Miyamoto, who also serves as Nintendo Creative Fellow at the system's launch.

The proposal called for a "student-centered" distribution model to replace the state's school finance formula created in 1994. The #RedForEd walkouts will leave some 840,000 Arizona students out of school on Thursday, according to The Associated Press.

Asked about his approach to management at a company that spawned Super Mario Bros., Zelda and other iconic games, Furukawa indicated that he's ready to challenge the status quo to take Nintendo forward. "But the Switch absolutely needs more mega hit games in 2018". His replacement for the position of Nintendo president will be 56 year old Shuntaro Furukawa. In addition to this, Nintendo Switch game sales have been solid. Additionally, operating profit was 177.5 billion yen, which was also a significant increase from past year. It's unlikely that Nintendo will be able to repeat the success of the Wii which sold 101 million units globally.

Also in the report, Nintendo said digital sales were "very good", specifically for Nintendo Switch. The operating profit for the latest quarter was 21.1 billion yen, which exceeded the average projection of analysts for 20.2 billion yen.

The system has reached sales of almost 18 million since launching in March 2017.
