Nintendo preparing more hardware for the Switch

Nintendo-Mario-Kart-1

The Nintendo Switch launched last March, but at the time, the platform's online service was undefined and left with more questions than answers.

Nintendo also stated that they saw a slight bump in 3DS sales during the holiday season. Some of these games would include Dr. Mario, Super Mario Bros.

After Nintendo's latest earnings report, we got a clearer look than ever into exactly how successful Nintendo is right now. For some context, the Wii U launched in 2012 and was sunset in 2017. While definitely not unprecedented in the industry, this is a massive leap for Nintendo especially with Switch sales continuing to skyrocket.

Alphabet's " other bets " category delivered revenue of $409 million, up from $262 million a year earlier. After eliminating costs for traffic acquisitions , Google's revenue alone was estimated at.87 billion.

There is no doubt that Nintendo Switch has performed way better than it was expected it to be and Nintendo plans to support the hybrid console for as long as possible and way past the Nintendo's traditional 5-6 year console cycle. That's up from its initial projection to sell 10 million Switch machines, which was raised a year ago to 14 million. Additionally, subscribers to the online service will receive access to many classic titles, as well as potentially receive special offers and discounts on eShop titles.

In recent years, Nintendo did an about-face to its past policy of shunning smartphone games, and has scored success in that sector as well. Japanese gaming company Nintendo announced Thursday that it's partnering with Illumination, the US studio behind hit films "Despicable Me" and "Minions" to make an animated Super Mario movie, CNN reported.

Nintendo said it will charge $4 a month for a one-month membership, $8 for a three-month membership, or $20 for a 12-month membership. "This game helps to maximize the number of people who have access to Nintendo [intellectual properties] by providing a Mario game that a wide variety of users around the world can enjoy", Kimishima said.
