They loss to the tune of 0 million (£327 million) which while not a huge blow to Nintendo is still nothing to sneeze at. The company has a strong lineup of games coming this year and a new hardware launch with the Wii U. Also with their further acceptance and planned implementation of digital content with the Nintendo Network, Nintendo will surely recover and become profitable again moving forward. In conjunction Nintendo will likely reduce the manufacturing costs of the 3DS this coming year and return that piece of hardware to a profitable status.
This news isn’t that disconcerting because we all know that Nintendo never stays down very long. They will bounce back and if they get a good E3 under their belt may even reclaim some nay-sayers regarding their recent efforts. Stay tuned for more Nintendo related news, but until then watch this Nintendo training video from 1991.
