Nintendo's Third Fiscal Year Report: Pokemon Sun And Moon Sales Over The Top
According to Venture Beat, Nintendo President, Tatsumi Kimishima, was pleased to announce that their third fiscal quarter results were better than expected. This was due to its "Pokemon Sun" and the "Pokemon Moon" game titles, which were selling at a mind-blowing rate. In fact, these games are on track in becoming the most popular games in the entire Nintendo 3DS library.
Nintendo launched the "Pokemon Sun" and the "Pokemon Moon" worldwide last year on Nov. 18, 2016. In the same month as it ended, sales in the America reached about 3.7 million units, making the two Pokemon game titles the fastest ever selling games of Nintendo in that region. By the end of the year, Nintendo was able to sell about 14.69 million copies, which means that it was racking up sales at an average of nearly 334,000 copies a day.
In regards as to what Nintendo plans to do in the future with the "Pokemon Sun" and "Pokemon Moon", Kimisima said that their "basic strategy" will not change and his company seeks to expand the number of people who have access to Nintendo. He also noted that there has been an increasing share of players in their 20s and 30s compared to past titles, and about 17 percent of "Pokemon Sun" and "Pokemon Moon" players were trying a Pokemon title on the Nintendo 3DS for the first time. This is important according to Kimishima, because Nintendo has its sights targeted on that specific group with its upcoming Nintendo Switch games console.
There is also another game that is selling quite well and is expected to become a million seller soon. The "Super Mario Maker" for the Nintendo 3DS, which was released in Japan last year is said to have the momentum of closing in on the total sell-through for the Wii U version that was launched in the previous year.
