Ultimate. More details on that will be given soon.

Nintendo largely credits that upswing to strong software sales on the Nintendo Switch.

Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee have sold 10.63 million units combined since their launch in November 2018, are the fifth best-selling Switch titles, behind The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, with lifetime sales of 12.77 million. Yoshi's Crafted World is also selling "faster than previous games in the series", and attracting a large female audience. Nintendo's overall operating profit for the year was $2.2B, up from 1.6B last year. Following this report, Nintendo CEO Shuntaro Furukawa has chose to clear the air on the matter and declare that the video game company has no intentions of revealing new hardware for the Switch during E3 2019.

On the mobile front, IP related income was 46.0 billion yen, a 17.0% increase year-over-year.

Now that Nintendo's new handheld-console Switch hybrid is now up to 34.74 million units sold worldwide, we put these numbers against the company's mighty forebears to see how the Switch stacks up.

Hope you like the hardware, because it doesn't seem to be going anywhere.

As Bloomberg reports, Nintendo managed to disappoint analysts, investors, and probably quite a few gamers as well this week.

One of the factors that may have led to Nintendo Switch Online's success is the free game offer with membership for "Tetris 99", a battle royale version of the classic game "Tetris" in which 99 players compete against each other.

One possibility is that Nintendo might be timing its own performance improvement announcements against the unveiling of new consoles from Sony and Microsoft.
