New 3DS XL refurb units $30 off at Nintendo's outlet store

Nintendo estimated profit to grow 2.2-fold to 65 billion yen ($584 million) in the year through March 2018, with sales jumping 53.3 percent. Analysts say Nintendo should typically generate operating profit of more than Yen100 billion, but profits have declined in recent years because of the weak performance of the Wii U console.

Pokémon Sun and Moon have shipped 15.4m copies in four and a half months, making them the second best selling 3DS title behind Pokémon X and Y. The Switch generated the most sales in the Americas with 1.2 million units. The company claims that it expects to sell 10 million units in its current financial year, meaning it expects to have sold nearly 13 million total by April. For instance, Nintendo Switch has surpassed the profits of the PlayStation 4 registered during the launch month in Japan. Despite several games releasing with heavy amiibo compatibility, sales were limited to 9.1 million figures and 9.3 million cards for the entire fiscal year.

The Switch has sold more consoles then either Nintendo or analysts expected, as the company reports a healthy profit.

Whether Switch will top the first year sales of the storied Nintendo Wii is still questionable.

Not long ago, however, we were contacted by and followed up with multiple respected and established "Nindie" developers unhappy with aspects of Nintendo's approach to the Switch eShop. Along with strong sales of the Nintendo Switch and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, it looks like the 3DS is still going strong. Considering one came out in 2011 and one came out seven weeks ago, that absolutely should not be the case. The word from eBay is that there are 437 units Nintendo is releasing at this price, so the deal should last for a few days at the very least.

Afghan defense minister, army chief resign after deadly Taliban attack
In March, another brazen Taliban attack killed dozens at the country's largest military hospital in the capital, Kabul. Ghani, American officials said, had to show that there was some degree of accountability in his government.

Smart device revenue was 24.2bn yen (~$218m), download sales on current hardware 32.5bn yen (~$292m). That's 200,000 copies more than there were consoles to play it on. In the next financial year, however, Nintendo expects zero Wii U hardware sales - after all, it's now ceased production. Although he helped a lot of great games get onto the Big N's platforms, his outspoken nature created some tension between himself and others within the company.

Did you buy a Switch in March and did you pick up a copy of Zelda?

Nintendo needs to make it super clear that there really is one console for all your Nintendo needs if they want the Nintendo Switch to maintain its momentum and make people feel like they are really fully committed to it rather than hedging their bets.

The big question mark is on holiday 2017, when Nintendo plans to release Super Mario Odyssey. When the Wii U version is included, that number reaches 3.84 million.
